Keith Hernandez's mustache is a cultural icon. It was there when the Mets won the World Series in 1986. It was there when you were a child and you were an adult. It's turned heads, it's kissed babies, it's made you laugh and cry. It's a part of you. It's your mustache just as much as Keith's.
So when the former Mets and Cardinals legend announced last week during a broadcast on SNY that he could potentially shave it by season's end, it set off a spine tingling sensation. Collectively, as fans of Keith and his mustachioed self, we need to stop him.
“I don’t want to draw attention to it,” he told Richard Sandomir of The New York Times. “I’ll do it, and whoever’s watching the game will see it.”
Let's hope not. Sign the petition and SAVE THE STACHE!
