And now, one of the most astonishing before and after photos in recent memory, as George Parros(notes) of the Anaheim Ducks goes from looking like the villain in a silent movie to looking like a college lacrosse player:
I have often been quoted on my mustache views and have obviously gained a strong foothold in the mustache community. Being that it is "Movember," when mustaches are grown worldwide all month long in the name of men's health awareness and to raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer, I think it is appropriate that I share some of my mustache inspiration with you. I have said before that I believe the mustache is the physical embodiment of all that is manly.
He even has a line of apparel called "Stache Gear" that benefits The Garth Brooks Teammates For Kids Foundation.
Parros is a charitable guy, and a supporter of "Movember." So this year, instead of simply being the guy with a mustache telling others to grow one, he decided to take off the 'stache and re-grow it for the charity campaign, to raise awareness for men's health issues -- as chronicled in this video clip:
We'd also like to see how Parros fares in his first fight sans mustache, to determine once and for all if the source of his power was on his upper lip. If so, the Ducks better get Snoop on the line to hook Parros up with a temporary replacement 'stache.
