Playoff Mustache Wars Intensify

Todd Yoder's mustache is gone. The Redskins still have two players with "stache" in their nicknames. But this battle now has two sides. You've heard, I suppose, about Matt Hasselbeck's playoff stache? Sportable has a picture, and a local Post-Intelligencer beat writer explains:

[Hasselbeck] strolled through the locker room sporting only a mustache after shaving the early stages of a beard that adorned his face following Sunday's game -- which, coupled with a wool cap, gave him a bit of a Tom Brady look.

With only the mustache, the comparisons turned to "Reno 911," and even Hitler.

"I could see that," wide receiver Nate Burleson said of the Hitler reference. "That shows Matt's in a good mood and knows how to keep everybody loose, and at the same time go out there and be a professional on the field."

Hitler, huh? Wonder if anyone in world history has ever previously typed the words "wide receiver Nate Burleson said of the Hitler reference." Anyhow, one Seahawks fan wonders whether Hasselbeck is becoming "Holmy Jr.," while others suggest the Seahawks should pass out mustaches to fans on Saturday, although there are also reports that the quarterback has already shaved.

Don't feel like you have to post just because Mottram tells you to. He's got his own blog, and that yahoo thingy.

Further proof that hasselbeck is a wuss - the man can't even keep a stache.
