There is an investigation going on over at Bleacher Report in an attempt to find out who this man is sitting the in crowd at the last 49er’s game. He has become instantly famous just for having a mustache. The camera man at the game clearly fixated on him and so did the TV viewers at home. Now there is an all out search on the Internet, on Twitter, just to find out who this amazing man is. What’s his story?
If you have any information that may help identify him, please contact us.
If you’re like me, Sunday means football. NFL football, specifically. Also, if you’re like me, Sunday football on FOX means one of the best staches in the game, on the upper lip of host James Brown. This perfectly coiffed stache represents the best that the NFL has to offer, and we are proud to fly the James Brown flag on this blog.
Tim has the Sergeant Slaughter look down pat. He’s got the tank top, the glasses, the hat and most crucial of all, the stache. No word on whether he can deliver a Sgt. Slaughter worthy Cobra Clutch and capture the WWE title, but his stache points toward his being able to handle all challengers.
Thanks to one of our fans (who also happens to be my mother) for the email tip.
Joel Quenneville, the venerable coach of the Chicago Blackhawks, currently has the team on the brink of their first Stanley Cup since 1961. And by Joel Quenneville, I mean his mustache. There is nothing like a quality gray mustache that says to players, “Follow me. I will bring you to the glory land.”
Not since Mike Ditka has a stache had such power over Chicago. The hockey hopes and dreams of a city that has been starved of a Cup win for almost 50 years is pinned, quite literally, to the upper lip of the man to the left. Because, if they close out the series they currently lead 3-2, they will win the second greatest trophy in all of sports. Behind the World Cup, of course. But only because no league has created a Golden Mustache as a trophy.
We’re just about ready to see the puck drop in the Olympic gold medal game between USA and Canada. Mustaches around North America and the world are giddy with excitement. Who is going to win? It is up in the air, but when you type “USA mustache” into Google images, this is what comes up. When you type in “Canada mustache” a picture of Hitler appears.
Let’s go Yankees!
Gawker proclaimed the faux mustache of French Olympic snowboarder Mathiew Crepel to be the most ironic in all the world. Why is Mathieu Crepel’s mustache the World’s Most Ironic Mustache? Quoth Gawker:
- Beginner’s irony: It is a fake, black-ink mustache on an adult.
- Advanced-placement irony: It is drawn on top of his real mustache.
- Nationalist irony: A teensy, curling mustache on a Frenchman, at an competition that emphasizes one’s citizenship.
He didn’t get a medal, but he gets the Gold in fake mustaches in our book.

New Orleans Saints star Reggie Bush, after having won the Super Bowl, is now featured in a milk mustache commercial. Milk mustaches may be fake but they’re delicious. More so if you have a real mustache underneath.

Hockey players, specifically Canadian hockey players, are renowned for a lot of things: their badassity, their fighting ability, their ridiculous haircuts and general dismissal of fashion (annoying pretty boy and Canadian Sean Avery aside), their storied traditions concerning facial hair.
Dan Carcillo is the holy grail of the above requirements:
1. Canadian? Born in King City, Ontario.
2. Badassity? He has grown a stache to honor past Flyers such as forward Dave Schultz.
3. Fighting ability? Carcillo led the NHL in penalty minutes in 2007-2008. It’s safe to assume that he understands the rules of hockey (read: dude fights).
4. Ridiculous haircuts? Combining his Shawn Hunter/Eric Matthews haircut from 1999 with his skinny stache, if he was out of his Flyers uniform he would not be allowed near children.
5. Storied traditions? The guy grew a mustache to honor the men who paved his way, an honor on par with being elected to the Hall of Fame. Come playoff time, Carcillo’s mustache may be swallowed by his playoff beard, but until then, he is the official Stachist representative in the NHL.
