Mustache Bracket

If you follow college basketball (or even if you don’t), you may have taken part in the American tradition of filling out an NCAA Tournament bracket. There will come a time, if it hasn’t already happened, when your bracket will become busted, and you will lose interest in said tournament.

When that time comes, take solace in the following project I have worked very hard to create. It is a bracket of mustaches, for which to pick the best mustache in baseball. The present author has taken the time to (arbitrarily, as time was a concern) whittle down the candidates to the two finalists, below. Choose wisely, pick your winner, and click the image to reveal the answer.

Joba has one liberally applied dirty sanchez right there. I vote Balboni

Balboni, for longevity’s sake.

Jobas is the perfect tribute, prolonging the Super Mario Pizza Dough Whiffmonster archetype.

In that picture Joba’s looks like the fake kind you can get at those dollar stores around halloween time.

I didn’t know John C. Reilly signed with the Yanks.

My immediate e thought was that I thought John C. Reiley was a Tiger in For the Love of the Game, and I didn’t remember his having a mustache in the movie. Then I realized my error.

How can there be a bracket since we already know who wins it all?

i would love if there was an actual bracket, and this was just one of the starting rounds. that’s my vote. also steve balboni is the epitome of a goofball

Forget mustaches, do an entire facial hair bracket. I fully expect to see John Axford and Sam LeCure included.
