Canes & Checkers: 2011 Movember Awards

As Movember comes to a close today and men everywhere rid themselves of their itchy porn staches. Our men of the Checkers and Canes have sacrificed their pretty faces all month to support men’s health. There were a few epic moustaches in Carolina, and we would like to honor those hairy upper lips with Cardiac Cane’s Silver Stache Awards.

The Carolina Hurricanes Movember efforts were lead by Brandon Sutter and supported by the fuzz of Derek Joslin and Jamie McBain. The NHL boys raised a total of $1,227 as of Wednesday morning. The Sutter stache brought in the most funds with $425.

The Charlotte Checkers had two competing teams managed by Chris Durno and Chris Terry. Together the teams raised an impressive $4,715 for men’s health. Kicked the Canes’ arses for sure!

Team Durno consisted of Nicolas Blanchard, Zac Dalpe (later replaced by Jerome Samson), Cedric McNicoll, Riley Nash, Matt Pistilli, Rasmus Rissanen, Bobby Sanguinetti, Justin Soryal, and Jared Staal. The team gathered a sum of $2,805. Nice work fellas!

Team Terry boasted Brett Bellemore, Zach Boychuk, Justin Faulk, Michal Jordan, Mike Murphy, Justin Peters, Mathieu Roy, Justin Shugg, and Brett Sutter. These boys raised $1,910 for family jewels. Great job!

The teams were neck-to-neck most of the month, but Team Durno came out on top. Thank you too all the guys that participated and everyone that donated to this terrific cause.

The award categories were declared earlier this month as to avoid any mo favoritism (aka, assigning a Sutter to every award). So, please put your mitts together for our 2011 Silver Stache winners:

The Grandbrow: It’s full. It’s crazy. It’s got bits of food in it. It’s your Grandpa’s eyebrow pasted on Chris Durno’s lip. Mr. Durno just let that muzzy go like a Chia Pet high on too much Miracle Grow.

The Tom Selleck: Jamie McBain whipped out a perfectly thick and well-formed Tom Selleck. Hats off Bainer.

The Lip Mullet: Although Matt Pistilli was forced to shave off his evil mo, as it was bringing doom and destruction to all around it, it was on its way to a timeless shaggy lip mullet.

The Yosemite Sam: Hands down Mr. Chris Murray grew one for the record books. I had the pleasure of seeing it in person and it distracted me from the game. Just wow.

The Ginger Stache: Riley Nash easily takes the trophy for best ginger muzzy. Dare I say it was pretty?

The Salvador Dali: Sadly, this moustache was never fully born. Justin Faulk came the closest with his thin, extended stache. His wings stick like a Salvador Dali mo, so Mr. Faulk takes the prize in this category.

The Chaplin: Brett Sutter is a cross between a Chaplin and a 1950’s advertising executive. Either way, it is fantastic. The added flow comb over makes this stache priceless.

The Fuzzy Bunny: Giving a man an award titled, “Fuzzy Bunny,” may sound like an insult, however, it is meant in the most endearing of terms. Actually, Mr. Michal Jordan’s trim and tidy, whisper of a stache was downright drool educing. Please sir may I have some more? A couple more weeks?! Days?!

You can view all the winners and other dirty muzzies here. Honorable mentions go to Mathieu Roy and Jared Staal (for creative effort).
