November is a critical month for hockey. I’m not referring to games and points, but rather facial hair. That’s right, it is moustache season. The month affectionately nicknamed Movember, is responsible for growing hairy lips all over the world. Men participating in the event are raising awareness and funds for men’s health, mostly prostate cancer (or #SaveMyBalls as Checkers’ player Matt Pistilli tweeted). You may visit https://us.movember.com for more information.
The Carolina Hurricanes and Charlotte Checkers are participating in Movember and I am anxious to see what type of moustaches our boys produce. Will someone (cough, Riley Nash, cough) give birth to a Ginger Stache like Lanny McDonald? Or will one of our boys get a little crazy with a Dirty Harry (think George Parros)?
The Charlotte Checkers have split their team into two with Chris Terry and Chris Durno as the hairy captains. Check out the below video to decide which team to support.
Pop your vitamins boys and let the growing commence. Winners of the following categories will be announced November 30th.
The Tom Selleck
The Lip Mullet
The Yosemite Sam
The Ginger Stache
The Salvador Dali
The Dirty Harry
The Fuzzy Bunny
I would also like to take this time to brag about Brandon Sutter’s moustache being dedicated to me this month (or at least a day this month) as I have a signed contract as proof. Not like I gave him a chance to decline.
