Well, well, well. It sounds like Todd Haley's winning streak beard is starting to catch on.

As Kansas City Chiefs fans know, Haley stopped shaving at the first San Diego Chargers game and hasn't shaved since during the Chiefs four-game winning streak. After seeing some of the costumes (and non-costume people) at Monday Night Football on Halloween, we know the winning streak beard is catching on around Kansas City.

It may even be making its way to South Florida. Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano spoke to the media on Wednesday and was asked about Haley's superstitions.

"I've had this thing (facial hair) since the start of the season and preseason and that didn't work out so good, so I shaved it just before one of the games a couple weeks ago," he said. "And that didn't work out so good, so I grew it back. And maybe this thing is going to turn into those ZZ Top things. We'll work it that way."

Sparano has just the goatee going on, and not the full beard, so maybe that's why the Dolphins are 0-7. Here's what Sparano looks like in the early stages of his superstitious facial hair. As he said yesterday, maybe he needs to change his hat, too.
