Year of the stache

This has been a great year for the mustache. There was Liev Schreiber's in the latest Broadway production of Glengarry Glen Ross. Schreiber was the best thing in an uneven production, and he won a Tony.

Tony Leung sported one in 2046, and it got him into Zhang Ziyi's qipao.

Jake Plummer grew one in honor of his fallen teammate Pat Tillman, and in the process has had the best season of his career, leading the Broncos to the playoffs.

Gonzaga's Adam Morrison deserves extra credit. Not only is he sporting a mad stache, he's got the hair to match, a bit of Billy Crudup circa Almost Famous. How's it working out for Morrison? He's just leading the nation in scoring.

LeBron? Yep. In fact, it's quite possible he's been sporting a mustache since he was 8, which might explain his precocity. Either that, or one of these days he'll just come out and admit he's 34, which is also quite possible.

I'm not taking any chances. If I start now, I may have a mustache in place by this time next year.
