Using His Mustache for Good
Portland chiropractor Lou Jacobs is a finalist for the American Mustache Institute's Mustached American of the Year competition, which rewards people who "use their mustache for good."
Jacobs is working to raise $10,000 for cancer research and education by January 1, 2011, for which he will shave off his mustache - or not. With each donation, Jacobs will take votes: save or shave.
The "Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year" contest is not a best mustache contest, the American Mustache Institute says. Rather, the award recognizes the person who "best represents or contributes to the Mustached American community."
Jacobs is in some famous company. Among the other nineteen finalists are North Dakota Governor John Hoeven, major league baseball pitcher Carl Pavano and umbire Jim Joyce, former Iowa Governor Terry Brandstad, former NBA player Kevin Johnson, TV and radio personality Pat O'Brien, and Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville.
