A Champion's Stache: #20 Barbaro Garbey

In light of my newfound commitment to the greater good that is the collective power of Michigan fans growing mustaches for the September 5th opening game, I thought it best to recall a time 25 years ago when Mustaches led our own Detroit Tigers to their last World Series Championship

There are 19 days to go. That means that you have enough time to grow a better mustache than Barbaro Garbey, who checks in at #20 on the list. Of course, Barbaro was just a rookie in that 1984 season and may have needed the confidence that only a mustache can bring as he played in 110 games on the way to the Tigers' first championship since 1968. It's small, and it's thin, but it is there. You have a choice. With 19 days to go, you can either be a Barbaro Garbey or a Dave Gumpert.

Don't be a Dave Gumpert.
