The Minnesota Wild, as well as several other teams in the NHL and other non-celebrities and non-athletes across the world, are taking part in “Movember” to help raise money to fund research on cancers affecting men.
The premise is this: Start November clean shaven and grow a mustache (Mo) for the entire month. You can read more about the origins of the Movember movement here.
Since 2003, Movember has raised about $42 million for cancer research.
Pretty much all the Wild players are growing their mustaches to support the cause. Forward Cal Clutterbuck’s stache even has a Twitter account. It’s funny stuff, which you can follow here.
Cullen told me the other day that he will be growing a mustache to help out. No word if he’s going with this 70′s look he sported a couple years back:
In any event, there is still time to become a “Mo Bro.” Just start growing your stache and let everyone know when they ask what’s going on with your upper lip that it’s to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues.
You can donate money, and even get Movember apparel at the Movember site.
I’ll leave you with this, the best mustache in the history of faces:
