On a very eventful day for the Sacramento Kings, Quincy Acy has reminded us that life is nothing but a pointless journey to an eternal grave.

If history has taught us one thing, it is that a memorable face full of hair is the key to a happy successful life. Everyone from Abraham Lincoln to Burt Reynolds can match their success to the bountiful bristles. Alas, the bearded community lost a member today, as Sacramento Kings' forward Quincy Acy shaved the follicular masterpiece protruding majesticly from his seldom seen chin.

No one knows quite what this means, but if you've heard the story of Samson and Delilah, you know this one ends. Can he still dunk? Can he still jump? Can he still shoot? Can he still Dance? One can only speculate at this point. Twitter immediately reacted with horror upon seeing this follicular felony.

Quincy Acy assures us that the beard will return, but in the mean time, I am reminded of the fragile nature of this downward spiral that we call life. What does it mean? Where do we go from here? Why do bad things happen? For the first time in my life, I do not have the answers. I just hope that we can get through this, and we can get through this together. We almost lost our team twice. We've withstood the roller coaster that has been the last decade. Now, we have another hardship that will hopefully make us better. Until then, Godspeed to you all, hug the ones you love, and goodnight.
