Caps grow mustaches
The end of this month is really a slap in the face for me. I've known for almost two weeks that two caps--Brendan Morrison and Shaone Morrisonn--were growing mustaches in honor of Movember, since their natural hockey nicknames are "Mo" and all.
I mean, if you were writing my job description back in 2007, you couldn't have gotten to the third line without mentioning "athlete facial hair," and yet November is about done and I never made it out to Kettler to talk with the Mos about their mos.
Luckily, the Caps just posted a video of the same, and transcribing Web video is almost the same as transcribing radio interviews, so here goes.
"I've never actually tried to grow a mustache by itself before, and I don't know what the feedback's been like," Morrison said. "I've been hearing a lot of things from creepy to weird, all these things."
"This is my first mustache," Morrisonn added. "Kind of going for the Rod Langway look."
Caps PR guru Nate Ewell, who hatched this idea of the Caps participating in the worldwide prostate-cancer event, asked the Morrison/ns whose 'stache was better.
"I would classify that as two losing battles," Bruce Boudreau noted.
"I think mine's a little thicker," Morrison said. "He seems to have that pencil-thin look going right now."
"He thinks I'm dying mine and trimming it, but it's not true, it's just natural," Morrisonn countered. "He's a little older than me, so he should be able to grow a better mustache, but I think I'm ahead right now, and a lot of guys are saying they really like it."
Sure they are, Shaone. Really, go watch the video.
And as long as I'm talking "hockey," here's a cake given to Reader Matt by his mother-in-law over the weekend. "It was just too beautiful not to share," he wrote. Sort of like a great mustache.
