31 Days of Moustache: Larry Bird

Name: Larry Joe Bird
DOB: December 7, 1956
DOD: Still Alive
Profession: Athlete
Claim to Fame: NBA Legend as a Boston Celtic, 3 Time MVP ('84-'86)
Prime YAM (Years Active with Moustache): 80s

Why It's Awesome:
Bird is the greatest clutch shooter in NBA history. He's also the standard for any white boy playing basketball. Let me put it this way, he was called Larry Legend for a reason. As Magic Johnson (longtime rival) said upon Bird's retirement, they'll only be one Larry Bird. He was that fucking good. See above video to further prove this point.

Some people forget that Bird also has one of the classic moustaches in his early career. It struck fear in his opponents. Everyone knew they were in deep shit when they saw this hick from French Lick with a 'stache with the ball in his hands.

Bird's 'stache is legendary in Boston. Good, young basketball players even grew out a 'stache, so they could be like Bird. Hell, if Bird kept his 'stache, then the Celtics may have won more than three titles.

Final 'Stache Rating (Out of Four Moustaches):

This 'stache is simple, but works for Bird. It really didn't need to be fancy. Bird was so good that anything would have been acceptable.

0 'staches for Bird. C'mon - you couldn't even tell that he had one with his hair and skin color!
