Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

For one last glimpse of this year's ex-stache-aganza, here's the undisputed champ, Dave. (I can't remember what the bartender nicknamed him. Something cheesy Italian.)

Seriously, THAT is a normal mustache. Dave, keep it for as long as humanly possible.

Greg said...

Bob Goulet is alive!!!!

Geoff said...

Kinda has a "Bobby Valentine sneaking back into the dugout" feel to it.

rob said...

that mustache is daring jerry to make north brunswick jokes

TJ said...

And nice work showing us all the choppers Dave...excellent teeth. Danny Kaye would be proud.

Geoff said...

You know, we don't talk about Danny Kaye enough around here. The man was a true showman...and an excellent foil to Bing Crosby's wife beatin' ways.

TJ said...

And, much like "the other" Jon Voight, quite a dentist.

Jerry said...

I have nothing but respect for that mustache.

Mark said...

That's the kind of mustache we'd have all sported (at some point in our lives, except for TJ, of course) had we been born in the late 40s/early 50s. We'd also have never used condoms, openly drank in our cars and, at least once peed in a hotel lobby. So...we'd live a lot like Greg.

Part of the problem with most of the OBFT staches was that you all rushed them. A good stache, like fine wine or a 17 year-old girl, needs time to fully develop.

Unless you're uber-swarthy, you'll want at least 6 weeks to let it go. If you only go 2-3 weeks, you end up with the Caucasian version of a Willie Randolph stache.

Mark said...

TR...I'm guessing you haven't seen many 17 year old girls lately. The hormones in the meat these days seems to cause...how you say...more rapid development.

TR said...

I was using the word "development" in a legal sense, not an anatomical sense.

On that note, anybody notice that Phil Hughes has now gone 14 consecutive games and 17 2/3 consecutive innings without giving up a run?

Jerry said...

Yeah, I was a little overconfident in my growth rate.

Dave said...

mustache status: shaved. but i'm resurrecting it for next year's OBFT and every year in perpetuity.

my lacy name was bruce.

jock itch status: cured! i'm wondering if it has some connection to shaving the mustache.
