A.J. Pierzynski’s mustache-growing isn’t going so well

A.J. Pierzynski pledged not to shave his mustache this month as part of the “Movember” charity effort to raise money for “men’s health issues” like prostate and testicular cancer.

I applaud his efforts, particularly since he’s already raised more than $7,000 via donations from the likes of Darin Erstad and Doug Mientkiewicz, but … well, the actual mustache-growing isn’t going very well.

It took 23 days for Pierzynski’s to go from clean-shaven to “hey, I think you have some food stuck on your lip or something.”

As someone who gets a five o’clock shadow at around noon each day I can’t decide whether to mock Pierzynski or be jealous. I also haven’t shaved for 23 days–partly because of “Movember” but mostly because I’m just really, really lazy–and right now I look like a homeless man’s Brian Wilson. That’s my primary skill. His is playing baseball well enough to earn $35 million in career salary. So we’re basically even.

    “…right now I look like a homeless man’s Brian Wilson” may be the best quote of the year by an HBT blogger. Priceless.

    Reminds me of Cliff “Wolfman” Claven on the beard contest episode of “Cheers”.

    Is that pathetic fungus amungus the reason the ChiSox declined arbitration?

    Being Sicilian growing hair is not a challenge. Never afraid to mess around with my facial hair because I can regrow a full beard in under two weeks.
