Ready, steady, MO!

Now Halloween is out of the way, we come to the real reason to celebrate the back of October – it’s Movember!

 

As the ever-growing Melbourne-founded charity go about their fantastic work raising awareness and vital funding, Commentary Box Sports thought it necessary to look at the sportsmen who have worn the mo best over the years.

 

Merv Hughes

 

While David Boon was fertilising his mo with endless tinnies, Merv was in the mirror pruning this organically-grown ripper.

 

 

Nick ‘Honeybadger’ Cummins

 

Living above one of the biggest runaway mouths in sport is a very ginger, furry faux-pas.

 

Carlos Valderrama

 

The mo was always kept impeccably neat and comparably subtle on this famous face. It’s a tough gig playing sidekick to that fro.

 

Graham Gooch

 

With Goochie’s gardening skills, it’s no wonder he cultivated this beauty. The sheer weight of it must have kept him on the front foot.

 

Mark Spitz

 

Spitz defied all streamline theories to win seven gold medals in the pool at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich with this porno-esque ‘tache.

 

 

Hulk Hogan

 

These fear-instilling whiskers quivered over many a prone opponent. Whatever you say Hulk’s mo!

 

Robert Dipierdomenico

 

They don’t build them like ‘Dipper’ anymore. And they certainly don’t sprout specimens as fine as his. What a man.

 

Rollie Fingers

 

With a name like that, this guy was always going to be famous. He just made sure with a perfectly waxed handlebar. The best-groomed of the bunch.

 

Graeme Souness

Captain of Liverpool during the golden 1980’s era and commander of a marvellous moustache. We salute you.

 

 

Michael Phelps

 

Phelps may have gone one better than Spitz and won eight golds at Beijing in 2008, but he did it without this good old handlebar. That puts them on par.
