For the National Hockey League, November means no shaving. And for most hair-fertile Capitals (sorry, Michael Latta) that meant looking greasy and weird for at least twenty days to raise money for men’s health. The player who maybe had both the best and worst looking mustache was hands down Alex Ovechkin.
The well-marketed Ovi, who had a clause written into his Gilette contract to allow participation in the charity movement two years ago, went from handsome superstar to Charles Manson look-a-like in November. And somewhere in the middle, he looked like a derp-y hipster, which I’m sure his boy Michael Phelps would be proud of.
Join us as we watch the furry Russian caterpillar burst into full bloom. Warning: by the end, you might feel compelled to hand over your license and registration to Alex Ovechkin.
