As you are all aware (or should be by now), November is the one month a year where men get to grow that most amazing mustache no matter how ridiculous our families or significant others think we look.  We can get away with it because it’s for a very important and incredibly great cause, raising of awareness and  funds for prostate cancer and its research. Movember.

From the Canadian Movember Website:

“Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month.  The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for prostate cancer.  Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.”

Employees at have collectively decided that we would all like to take part in this and help spread awareness through our various blogs. Dustin Parkes from Getting Blanked along with Myself, Scott Lewis and Joe Ross from good ol’ HOTH have started a friendly competition to see who will  grow the best duster by the end of the month. You can join in too if you’re up for it.

The Score has created a Movember Team page on The Canadian Movember Site. I greatly encourage everyone who regularly reads these blogs to head over there and join the team. We’re not looking for some bank breaking donation. $5 – $10 is pretty awesome if you ask me, and every little bit helps. You’ll feel really good about yourself for doing it and also, towards the end of the month, you can email and send us a picture of your stache. We’ll probably critique it and post it in the blog. Then you can send the link to your mom and show her how you’re helping with a great cause and it might just make her a little less disappointed in you and how you decided to not be a dentist and spent the better part of post-secondary drinking your loan money…You never know.

Aside from the donation stuff and joining The Score’s Movember team, the contributors on the HOTH blog will spend this month honoring some of the best dusters in the game, possibly power rank some of them and maybe even have a duster-buster bracket where we can crown the best moustache in the history of the NHL. Who knows. Lets just get the word out to as many people as possible and really try to make a difference.

Everyone put your hand in the middle…Wwwwhhhhhhhhoooooooooa HOTH Dusters!

  1. Movember ftw. I wish I could grow a sweet stache

  2. Same. And if I don’t shave I look just patchy. I’ll spread the word though.

  3. I can promise you that the uglier your stache is, the better. There are 15 year-olds that can rival me in facial hair growing but it’s all about the cause. Don’t worry about how you look. The weirder, the better. That’s a fact.
