Boston's best mustaches
Boston's best mustaches
Gentlemen, put away your razors. Movember is upon us. During the yearly event, men have been challenged to grow a mustache to spark conversation for men's health.
In honor of the movement, CSNNE is taking a look back at some of the best mustaches in Boston sports history.
#10 - Rene Rancourt
This Garden legend gets four fist pumps from us for his 'stache.
#9 - Derek Sanderson
Thank God Sanderson played back in the day when players didn't wear helmets or shields so we could get a clear look at his 'stache as he made his way around the ice.
#8 - Dwight Evans
Dwight Evans had it all. He could hit. He could throw. He was a solid overall player. Not to mention he had a solid mustache game throughout his playing days.
#7 - Wade Boggs
The only thing more consistent than Boggs' .328 career batting average is the 'stache he wore throughout his career. Luckily the Yankees facial hair rule didn't force Boggs to shave his 'stache in 1993, because that would have been a travesty.
#6 - Larry Bird
Larry Legend's 'stache is truly a legend. It's not the greatest 'stache - you can barely see it thanks to Bird's golden locks - but it is definitely a good conversation starter when it comes to facial hair. 'Hey, remember when Larry Bird had a mustache?'
#5 - Dennis Eckersley
Dennis Eckersley came into the league as a fresh-faced rookie with the Cleveland Indians. It wasn't until he grew his trademark 'stache that he really came into his own in the league. Coincidence? We think not.
#4 - Tim Thomas
The former Bruins netminder has always been a big proponent of the Movember movement. He sported a 'stache every November and even wore a Movember-themed mask.
#3 - Rod Beck
Formula for an intimidating closer: Arm swinging from the stretch. Check. Mullet flowing from his hat. Check. But the thing that completes the look is the badass fu manchu Beck wore throughout his career.
#2 - Logan Mankins
Nothing says, 'I'm an intimidating offensive lineman' like a fu manchu on a 300+ pound man. Mankins totally pulled off the look, and it really gave him a lot of character.
#1 - Luis Tiant
The thing about Luis Tiant's 'stache is it's like a fine wine, it continues to get better with age. It's a shame that 'El Tiante' never had his glorious 'stache enshrined on a plaque in Cooperstown.
