Mustache of the Month

Rollie Fingers has some major competition in the house now as Portuguese football player, coach and poet Artur Jorge takes home the Ricky Vaughn 99 Mustache of the Month Award for April 2008. Born February 13, 1946, Jorge's greatest accomplishment was when he won the European Champions Cup as a member of F.C. Porto. He has been known since as "King Artur" and was named one of the best 100 Portuguese football players of all time. Currently, the Mustache King is the manager of French Second Division Team US Créteil-Lusitanos, where he shares his knowledge of the sport of mustache growing with all the young players and coaches. Last month he had a major scare when he arrived home after a big win. Mrs. Jorge was frantic as her husband came home, screaming over and over in Portuguese which was later translated: "Artur, my goodness my poor love...what on earth happened to your upper lip? It is gone!"
