    This has been all over ESPN the last couple of days. Mustaches all over the stands, supporting Giambi, people talking about the mustache being a good reason to put Giambi in the All-Star game (!!)...

    It was sad enough that this happened at all for a major league team... but when the manager gets into it and wears a 'stache as well, it reaches an entirely new level.

    And for the Yankees, known for being a very 'professional' club, its even worse.

    Does ESPN have anything better to do?

    What ever happened to the Yankees policy of no facial hair?

    They certainly should.

    And I think its all a sign of the Yankees no longer being "The Yankees".

    Good riddance, anyways.

    EDIT: I should be able to do stupid markups by now.

    I like mustaches, but the attention it's getting from the media is rather silly. Still, at least they aren't talking about Barry Bonds...

    Oh. Wait.

    Never mind.

    Summer is a slow news period, clearly.

    Still, how the heck does a mustache become a reason to be in the All-Star game? Seriously?

    At least they stopped talking about the golden thong Giambroids was sharing with the other Yanks to help with slump busting. [face_sick]

    And as one ESPN person said, better that they hand out mustaches than thongs. [face_sick] is right.

    It was better last year when the Mets did it. They gave out Keith Hernandez mustaches because he won some sort of Best Mustache in New York contest.

    I still have mine somewhere.

    Amazing.

    I love reading your manual sig as the concluding line of your posts. It makes me laugh 7 times out of 10.

    If he's a winner of a contest like that, there's more reason than the Yanks have for Giambi.

    and lol@the failed attempt to put him in for the mustache.
