If Only Mike Cooper Called New York City Home...

It's a sad commentary on the state of the summer sports scene that one of the most important things happening today (other than the Arena Football playoffs, of course) is this Mustache Madness tournament going on at Keyboard Quarterbacks.

Unfortunately, the contestants are limited to those who have had something to do with sports in New York City. And that's fine, NYC is a good place to start if you're looking for the best in hairy upper lips, but representatives from Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and much of the midwest would like to take on the winner. Rollie Fingers is just waiting to kick anybody's ass.

We're down to the Sweet 16 today, with 1 seeds Goose Gossage, Keith Hernandez, Bobby Nystrom, and Walt Frazier (my pick) still alive. Darkhorse candidate John Starks and his penciled-on mustache, I'm sorry to say, didn't survive the first round.
