I couldn’t agree with the above statement even more!!! As all of you already know, I have not shaved nor gotten a hair cut since the first week of February. However, many people do not know that I have been fond of growing facial hair for quite some time now. Every March and November for the past several years, I have taken part in “March Stashness” (not to be confused with March Madness) and Movember (the month formerly known as November). Since I have only two more days before I am getting “the once over” at the barber shop, I wanted to search the web for some of the best mustaches around and pay tribute to everyone’s favorite patch of hair…….the flavor savor!!!
First off, I wanted to pay tribute to the man that many underground mustache enthusiast credit for making mustaches look really cool back in the 70’s and 80’s and even today. His name? TOM SELLECK, Mr. Magnum P.I. himself folks! Now rumor has it, that Mr. Selleck was the first choice to play Indiana Jones in the now famous movie series. However, he turned it down when the studios refused to offer his mustache the second role. They instead gave the main role to Harrison Ford, and the second role to that little asian boy with the yankees hat who kept yelling “INRY, INRY”.
Next up we have former college football star, and famous actor Burt Reynolds. Let’s give Mr. Reynolds a warm hand everybody! Burt is famous for his earth shaking roles in Deliverance, Boogie Nights, and The Dukes of Hazard (joke), but he may be more famous for his athletic career. He was a standout football player at Florida State University, and was later drafted by the Baltimore Colts. As we all know he turned down there offer to pursue his film career. His mustache however, accepted the offer, and went on to play quarterback for the Colts under the name Jonny Unitas.
This next mustache is absolutely one of the all time best, and will no doubt go down in history as so. It belongs to Rollie Fingers!!! Not only is Mr. Fingers (hahahaha) one of the all time great pitchers, he is also from Steubenville, Ohio, and has one of the most kickass flavor savors of all time. If he did not make it as a professional pitcher, he no doubt would have had a glorious career as a porn star, not only with his name, but with his excellent stache.
Other notable famous mustaches include but are not limited to Dale Earnhardt, Steve Prefontaine, Sal Fasano, Charlie Chaplan (which later became Hitler, BOOOOOOO!!!!), Einstein, and Alex Trebeck. Of course, this list could go on and on and please feel free to add your personal favorites. I will update any that I feel need to have a write up. I will see you on the flip side! One Love!
