Carl Pavano Among Goulet Award Finalists

Pop quiz, ninjas...what do Stanley Cup winning coach Joel Quenneville, UTEP's mascot Paydirt Pete and Minnesota Twins pitcher Carl Pavano have in common?

They all have mustaches?

Close.

They all have mustaches and have been honored to be among the finalists to be named "Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year" by the American Mustache Institute?

Absolutely.

The three are among the 19 finalists that will be competing for the honor at this year's upcoming 'Stache Bash 2010.

Last year, The Hall of Very Good threw its weight behind eventual winner...Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Clay Zavada.  This year...The Hall's full support is behind Alyssa Milano's former boy toy Pavano.

Why Pavano? Here's what the AMI had to say:

Many thought Carl Pavano’s baseball career was done. And then he grew a mustache. Since then, he resurrected his career with a 17-11 record in 2010, 3.75 ERA, and a Central Division Championship. His Pavstache single handedly brought the popularity of lip garments back to Minnesota and powered the team into the 2010 playoffs.

Add to that the fact that Pavano's lip sweater also fathered multiple Twitter and Facebook accounts and you've got one worthy 'stache.

So, here's the deal. Head over to the AMI site and vote for the Twins righty. 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.
