John Axford Has a Killer Mustache
We here at LBS have had a long standing fascination with athlete’s facial hair. A few years ago it was Eric Byrnes bringing back the porn stache, then it was Jason Giambi sporting a lucky stache, and this Spring it was Jayson Werth invoking the Jesus look. On Thursday night, I and many others noticed that Twins pitcher Carl Pavano’s stache was coming in well. While Pavano has a beauty going, nothing compares to new Brewers closer John Axford whose got the best Rollie Fingers mustache since Clay Zavada. Here’s a picture of John Axford’s mustache in full form:
Axford has emerged as Milwaukee’s closer now that Trevor Hoffman and Carlos Villanueva have struggled. With the Brewers’ closing situation there’s always instability, but as long as Axford keeps converting saves he should stick with it. And that would be great for all of us because more mustache is better for everyone.
