Keith Hernandez Is Threatening To Shave Off His Mustache

Mets treasure Keith Hernandez tells The New York Times's Richard Sandomir that he might just shave his mustache before the final game of the 2012 season. Hernandez's old Just For Men endorsement deal required that his mustache never go gray, but that contract lapsed earlier this year—"They said our ads were stale," Hernandez told Sandomir—and he's now free to do whatever he wants. So he'll go from serving one master to serving another. Keith's passive threat ("I'll do it, and whoever's watching the game will see it") does the impossible: It gives Mets fans a reason to watch in October.
