We are halfway through November, and that means halfway to getting these mustaches off everyone’s faces! Just kidding – we love Movember and applaud the many men’s health concerns for which it raises awareness and funds. Just don’t wear a mustache home to meet our parents on Thanksgiving.
This year I donated on the promise that Mr. Pants would spare us all from his attempt. [Donate here] Ever the joiners, some of our favorite hockey players could not be persuaded by the same argument.
The Sidstache continues its bi-annual tradition of failing to ruin Crosby’s face.
For a guy I’m willing to guarantee has never seen an adult film, John Tavares’ mustache is alarmingly licentious. Give it a week to darken and a glass of scotch, it’ll be straight off Paul Rudd’s face in Anchorman.
Like our favorite season – playoff beards – Movember is a time when any hockey player can shine. The enthusiasm is fueled by charity, rivalry and selfies taken up one’s own nose.
Winnik’s mustache is pretty spectacular, but Komarov is no slouch. Did we say get these mustaches off? Rescind. Let these babies grow.
Chuck wanted to hire Eddie Lack as our new intern, then Intern Jeff Skinner saw his Movember face and sighed with relief. This does not work for free.
She’d have had better luck with Montreal’s Brendan Gallagher, who could get a dollar for every hair in this mustache and still need to borrow five bucks for lunch.
But it’s not the result that count. It’s the effort and collective knowledge that no one, in any year, can ever really win Movember. Because let’s face it, not even 2014 Beard of the Year and Stanley Cup winner Jeff Carter can really rock a mustache. He’s just standing in this hallway, waiting for D’Artagnan to arrive for their duel.
