Hello, Keith Hernandez; Goodbye, Mustache Movember

I know I’m two days late for my final mustache showing of Movember but both cords we have for downloading our digital cameras mysteriously disappeared.

So I bought a new camera.

I had to. Mine was tragically smacked out my hand by an 8-year-old (not named Thing 2) at a birthday party in May, and it had been shooting with a wonky focus ever since. That’s why I’ve been looking so Cybill Shepherd in Moonlighting-ish of late. 

So without further ado, here is my Day 30 ‘stache, in which I channel my inner Keith Hernandez.

me and mexWhy Keith?

Because Keith is a one-time Most Valuable Player and 11-time Gold Glove winning first baseman.

Because Keith, in 2007, won the American Mustache Institute’s Top Sports Mustache of All Time award and had his own mustache tribute day at Shea Stadium:

Because Keith played a central role in one of the best episodes of Seinfeld ever.

Because Keith is a spokesman for Just for Men Mustache and Beard dye gel which, I admit, I had to use not so much to hide the gray but to darken the blonde so people could tell I was growing something under my nose.

Because Keith, while broadcasting a Mets game this year, reflected the feelings of all the team’s fans by falling asleep during the “action”:

God save you and your mustache, Keith.

And God save those of you who contributed to me and Team DadCentric, to help us raise more than $1,300 to fight prostate and testicular cancer.

As for those of you who didn’t donate this time out, I’m sure you were saving up to make a HUGE contribution this spring when I ask for you to support Cure JM in the Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon/Half Marathon in June.

Now back to our regularly scheduled, unfuzzy and Uncool face:

  1. Nice stache man. Seinfeld rules, Hernandez rules and Movember rocks worldwide. I've got Rollie Fingers, Lanny Macdonald and others in a short youtube music video I made for Movember Canada called "Grow a Muzzy- photo version"

    Check it out if you'd like.
    Cheers from way up north, marsh

  2. Was there a second spitter? Seattle in June, eh. Maybe I'll see you around.

  3. I KNEW there was something just a little too perfect about your mustache.

  4. C'mon...everyone knows that the best mustache worn by a 1980's NY first baseman with an MVP (not shared) and multiple Gold Glove awards belonged to Don Mattingly.


  5. See? I told you it was Keith! (snort)

  6. It may be wrong but when I look at these photos, my first thought is "love the shower tile."

  7. You really used the Just For Men stuff?!
    That is awesome.

  8. From your post I know you will enjoy the comment I had planned upon seeing the name Keith Hernandez.

    You should have just put your picture up and said "I'm Keither Hernandez." I would have laughed non stop throught the weekend.

  9. I am now both impressed by your machismo, and educated on all things Hernandez.

    I don't know why you shaved it off. I think you should've kept that bad boy going.

  10. Thank god Movember is over. My dad says a lot of useless crap, but one thing he says, I've always believed to be true: Never trust a man with a mustache because he is hiding something.

  11. why you shaved it off, mustache is cool

  12. I like the no stache! It looks awesome.

    New here


  13. Great job raising some bucks during Movember... and doing it with panache!
