Jeff Fisher: Rams Bounty Program

Jeff Fisher recently established a bounty program for the St. Louis Rams.

STACHE FOR CASH? Not Really says the Coach:

In an effort to establish a team identity, Coach Fisher's new program will encourage all members of the St. Louis Rams organization to grow the best moustache as possible. "This includes the front office, players, scouts, and even the secretaries!" Fisher stated in a recent interview on ESPN.

When asked how he expected the female's to grow a moustache Fisher responded, "I know it's not possible for everyone to grow a moustache but I'm encouraging them to try. We are trying to lay the foundation of a great team in this building. I'm no doctor but I would think there is a form of hormone therapy, and if that doesn't work they could always wear a pasty!" Fisher added.

Fisher told this reporter, "The awards will be handed out each week based on the judging rules used by the WBMC (World Beard & Moustache Committee). I will be the judge and my decision is final! The winner will receive a life time pass to the MHOF (Moustache Hall of Fame), and season tickets to the world championships held each and every year!"

When asked about possible repercussions from Roger Goodell and NFL Fisher was not the least bit intimidated. "The moustache makes the man, the player into a beast! It makes them play harder during the season, and gives them a hobby in the off season. This can only help the NFL by keeping the players out of trouble with drugs, and alcohol. I mean come you really want to spend your hard earned dollars to go see a game full of baby faced pretty boys? Or would you like to see every athlete have a well conditioned body topped off by a beautiful Stache? I can tell you how the women fans will answer that one in case you don't get it."

Really? I asked him, "Read this Stache," Fisher told me, "This is the future of the Rams!"

So there you have it folks, Jeff Fisher has spoken about developing team "Stacheness". It remains to be seen if this new incentive will catch on with the other teams in the NFL. The coach left us with some "stache" facts courtesy of his favorite reference....Wikipedia.

Be a good fan and study up!

That is all..............

The World Beard and Moustache Championships 2007 had 6 sub-categories for moustaches:

  • Natural - Moustache may be styled without aids.
  • Hungarian - Big and bushy, beginning from the middle of the upper lip and pulled to the side. The hairs are allowed to start growing from up to a maximum of 1.5 cm beyond the end of the upper lip.
  • Dalí - narrow, long points bent or curved steeply upward; areas past the corner of the mouth must be shaved. Artificial styling aids needed. Named after Salvador Dalí.
  • English moustache - narrow, beginning at the middle of the upper lip the whiskers are very long and pulled to the side, slightly curled; the ends are pointed slightly upward; areas past the corner of the mouth usually shaved. Artificial styling may be needed.
  • Imperial - whiskers growing from both the upper lip and cheeks, curled upward (distinct from the royale, or impériale)
  • Freestyle - All moustaches that do not match other classes. The hairs are allowed to start growing from up to a maximum of 1.5 cm beyond the end of the upper lip. Aids are allowed.

Other types of moustache include:

Notable moustaches:

The longest recorded moustache belongs to Bajansinh Juwansinh Gurjar of Ahmedabad, India. It had not been cut for 22 years and was 12 feet, 6 inches long in 2004.

In some cases, the moustaches are so prominently identified with a single individual that it could be identified with him without any further identifying traits, such as in the case of Adolf Hitler. In some cases, such as with Groucho Marx and Charlie Chaplin, the moustache in question was artificial for most of their lives. Kaiser Wilhelm II's moustache, grossly exaggerated, featured prominently in Entente propaganda.

U.S. Air Force ace Robin Olds became celebrated for the flowing handlebar moustache he grew while commanding the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing "Wolfpack" during the Vietnam War, and when forced to shave it by his superior became the source of an Air Force tradition known as "Moustache March".

Among professionals

Moustaches are noted among U.S. Army armor and cavalry soldiers.While the origins of this tradition are not fully understood, facial hair serves to adhere the soldier to his respective digital thermal viewer on the M1 Abrams tank and the M2 Bradley fighting vehicle.
