First post out of the way. Time to get into the heavy stuff.
So earlier this fall, Coach T assigned us a community service project to do within our Hoosier Wars teams. (If you don’t know what a Hoosier Wars team is, just follow along. If you don’t know who Coach T is, check out his blog. No more wondering.) Thanks to the fact that my Hoosier Wars team is full of men who can look like Mr. Discount Double Check in the picture above within a week of no shaving, it was only fitting that we chose a project that accentuated our ability to grow majestic facial hair. Team Captain and Senior Defenseman Jeff Redish brought to our attention a website that not only let us grow moustaches for a reason other than “No Shave November”, but could possibly help the cause that Movember stands for. We are directed to follow guidelines put forth by the website us.movember.com until the end of the month, even if our community service project ends next week. Here is a little about the cause the people at Movember are supporting:
“The funds raised in the US support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.”
Donations are encouraged for anyone who would like to give to any of these foundations. If you want to do so through one of our “Mo Space” pages, click “Donate” on the main page and find the “IU lacrosse blue barracudas” to contribute.
Of course, I have been participating as well. I have not shaved a single hair on my upper lip since the start of the month (the longest streak of my life) and I know our team members are just as committed. Hoping to look like this guy soon:
Stunning. For those of you supporting the IU soccer team in the NCAA tournament against Old Dominion on Sunday at 2, you may find me sporting something similar to this masterpiece.
Sanchez is Scared
This is why Mark Sanchez doesn’t win
Super Bowls the division against Tebow. At least Tebow would put Drayton Florence in his place.
