    I think we need to have a TM mustache competititon.

    Pick a day and everyone start clean shaven. Then week by week we post pictures and see who has the best stache in say 1 month.

    Like so many things in life - it is personal preference. I have tried playing on facial hair, it just doesn't work for me - anything more than about four days without shavinig and the embouchure just doesn't work like it should.
    Obviously works fine for other people - you can't argue against it when so many top level players have facial hair of one sort or another.



    That explains more about your taste in women than it does about the question posed in this thread.

    ok, ok, you got me. LOL It's probably a penalty thing, because I'm not really into football. I grew up in Indiana so I'm a big basketball fan!

    That's one of those 'meaning of life' type questions. Which, by the way, does have a few answers.

    In 2002, my bride Carla and I were cast as supernumeraries in The Dallas Opera's production of la bohème. My part (retired French army officer) required me to have a mustache, which was duly applied by the makeup shop.

    The first time they put it on (1st dress rehearsal), when I got back to the supers' dressing rooms, Carla looked at it and said, "Wow! We have to grow one of those".

    So when the opera closed, I started to grow it.

    Best regards,

    Doug
