Clay Zavada among Goulet Award Finalists

I was going to start this one with something catchy like "do you like mustaches" but I was once taught that you never, ever open up anything with a "yes" or "no" question.

Basically, you give people the chance to respond "no" and move on. But, since the answer is always "yes"...let's continue on.

From now until October 20, The American Mustache Institute (AMI) is looking for you, yes...YOU to help name the 2009 "Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year". You can check out all the rules and other candidates over at the AMI site, or just do what I for Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Clay Zavada.

Why Clay?

It's simple...this is a baseball site and he exemplifies everything that The Hall celebrated back in May during the annual Mustache May celebration. He started his with nothing and let the follicles grow!

None of this hair one day, gone tomorrow and back the next month nonsense of the St. Louis Cardinals. Once the Streator, Illinois native put his mind to it...he didn't look back.

Also, anyone who emulates (and celebrates) friend of The Hall Rollie Fingers is a winner in my book. Now, let's make it official!

So, here's the deal. Head over to the AMI site and vote for Zavada. Then...tell your friends and repeat.

It's kinda like the old "wash, rinse, repeat" thing from the shampoo ads...but with mustaches, rookie relief pitchers and Robert Goulet looking down from heaven with an angel on each arm smiling.

BallHype: hype it up!
