ABMGC IV: The Prelude

Saturday, December 4th, 2010 · 2 Comments

For those of you not distracted by the baby news in my last post, you may have noticed that another kind of being is also growing right under our noses — the kind that only a mother could love. Or at least only those with appreciation for the finer things in life.

Yes, the 4th Annual Anderson Brothers Mustache Growing Competition is now underway, and Pete is already putting me to shame, at least in terms of the quantity and quality of dedicated blog entries. To date, he’s racked up an impressive collection of ABMGC IV-related entries:

This is my attempt to make up for that, or at least to demonstrate my commitment to the competition.

First, it should be stated that due to extenuating circumstances, the ‘stache I began growing on Thanksgiving Day, per the rules of ABMGC IV, needed to be shaved on December 1. Pete and some fellow participants had already begun to grow, so I let them keep the 11/25/2010 start date to my 12/1/2010 date. After all, my competitors will need all the help they can get.

For those of you just joining us, here’s a highlight from last year’s competition to whet your appetite for the kind of awesomeness you’re in for:


And here’s an earlier rendition of one of my 2009 stages of growth:

The Kip

I can only hope that this year’s ‘stache will be as awesome as The Kip.

So there you go. The groundwork has been laid, the air is thick with anticipation (and upper-lip hair growth), and the 2010 Anderson Brothers mustache showdown is set for Christmas Eve right here in Saratoga Springs, NY.

Finally, I leave you with my official 12/1/2010 evidence of shaving photo:


Mustache on.
