Supporting the ‘Stache
This is a really cool graphic the talented designers at MLB.com cooked up for the Final Vote.
I’ll admit, I’m interested in seeing Giambi make the All-Star team, only because he’ll have something typically hilarious to say about how his mustache made all the difference. I love that he knew it looked terrible for the first few weeks and kept it anyway because he was hitting.
I also love that Derek Jeter told him to clean it up during one of the Yankees’ off-days — that was an official order from the Captain — and Giambi brushed in some Just For Men, showing up with a much darker and bushier growth.
Well, all that, and I think he’d be a draw to watch in the Home Run Derby. Giambi would be taking aim at the upper deck in right field and he’d probably send a few Jeffrey Maier-wannabes to the hospital in the process.
