She of course mentioned her beard and how Edelman said he was not sure – the king of t-shirts, Edelman was selling it with "MVP" engraved in his beard on his website – and that he was "feeling it".

"It became big for me," he quipped

Degeneres made an offer to Edelman: I will donate $ 10,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston if you shave my beard now.

Edelman accepted his offer and said he would match the $ 10,000.

Thanks to the miracle of television, there was already a barber's chair, a cloak with the logo of the Patriots and clippers waiting to be unveiled in front of the public.

"I like beard"

As Degeneres lifts the clipper up to his face (after shaking his hand comically), Edelman said, "Wait, wait."

She asked him if he wanted to say goodbye to his hair, and Edelman replied, "I love you, my beard. The year was cruel. "

Once Degeneres finished, Edelman looked very different and the crowd shouted his appreciation.

"It was for my other team, my family"

Before the big shave, Edelman said the most important thing was to win the Super Bowl – he had won the brilliant Lombardi trophy – but the recognition of the MVP also gave him something personal.

"Getting the MVP is a win for me and my other team, and it's my family. Come to live this with them because they are in my corner, they kind of made me who I am, "he said, referring to his parents, Frank and Angela. "My father was a tough guy with a tough nose and pushed me to the limits that I never thought I could reach. And my mother, being the loving little woman that she was, I was never late for a practice, she was always there. … I mean, I had a lunch bag until college. She took care of me for a long time. So, it's like a victory for the whole family. "
