Playoff Beard Question

So last year I didn't grow a playoff beard because I was searching for a summer job, and we all know what happened. This year, I should be fine growing a playoff beard as far as work is concerned. However, if I grow a beard and the Bruins lose, I'll think I jinxed them by not going beard-less like last season. Please help with words of encouragement ("It's ok, what you do has no impact on how the team plays) or discouragement (if you grow a beard and they lose I'll hunt you down). I really want to grow one but I want some assurance.
