There are few mustaches in the Caps locker room more impressive than Karl Alzner’s, so it’s only natural that he be charged with getting Movember updates from his teammates.
The Caps defenseman grabbed the mic and chatted with some teammates about their Movember efforts. His first unfortunate interview subject was Steve Oleksy (addressed by his nickname, Norris), whose mustache seems to be struggling.
“I can’t really tell you what I have going on because I’m not exactly sure how she’s gonna grow in,” Oleksy said. “I started it about a month ago and this is all I’ve got so far. I’ve got a hair here, a hair there, and we’ll see how it shapes up toward the end of the month.”
Troy Brouwer also talked about his “muzzy,” and said he’s modeling it after Karl Malone’s famous ‘stache.
“I like to keep it simple, like to keep it short sweet, cut it off at the edge of the lip,” Brouwer said. “Not quite you — yours is fancy, a little bit more for show, a little bit Lanny McDonald-ish. For me, I’m just clean, cut, but I do need to trim up the rest of the beard. It’s getting a little thick.”
