Lançado concurso para o Prêmo Goulet do Mustache.
The American Mustache Institute (AMI) today opened nominations for the second annual “Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year,” recognizing the most impactful Mustached American of the past year. The winner will tentatively be announced Oct. 30 at ‘Stache Bash 2009, a benefit for Challenger Baseball, a baseball league for children and adults with disabilities.
Last year’s winner of the prestigious ‘Goulet’ award – called “As noble as the Nobel Prize” by the late Walter Cronkite – was retired New York City police detective Tim Galvin, who had received three medals of valor and retiring as a captain after being shot in the face and leg while working undercover.
“The ‘Goulet’ award allows us to honor distinguished Mustached Americans,” said Dr. Abraham Jonas Froman, Chief Executive Officer of AMI. “The winner must both champion the Mustached American way of life and stand apart from his or her fellow Americans.”
What qualifies someone for this honor? A candidate could be:
· a furry lipped teacher who was an important influence;
· the brave and lip curtained U.S. Airways pilot Sully Sullenberger;
· a neighbor with a cookie duster who’s always been a generous volunteer;
· pitcher Clay Zavada of the Arizona Diamondbacks;
· actors Brad Pitt or George Clooney for proudly donning and propagating the Mustached American lifestyle;
· a mustached fireman who was willing to sacrifice his or her life to protect others;
· the entire St. Louis Cardinals team for growing mustaches to vault the team into first place;
· FOX’s animated Cleveland Brown for receiving his own program on the network;
· or a brave member of the U.S. military defending our freedoms overseas.
