With the passing of October, we now enter the month of Movember. (No, not November, despite what your calendar would have you believe.) Men around the world are encouraged to grow a mustache to raise awareness of male health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer.
As a kickoff to Movember, we bring you Today’s Badass, Adam Paul Causgrove, whom the American Mustache Institute has crowned its Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year. We didn’t know those two things existed, but we’re glad they do.
The award isn’t simply given for a superior mustache; it’s given for “best representing the sexually dynamic Mustached American lifestyle.” We didn’t know about that either, but Causgrove–who beat out Nick Offerman and St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher–seems like a good guy. He founded Tail-Great, a tailgating event for charity, and proved his patriotism during his acceptance speech: “I’m very proud to be representing Mustached Americans both across our great country and abroad to inferior nations.”
