It's Now Movember, Will José Participate?

Movember. I'd never heard of it before. I feel like I've been in the dark a bit. This is what I found out from the Wild's website:

The Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League (NHL) today announced that its company-wide Movember campaign will be presented by Sun Country Airlines.

Movember is an annual charity event held during November that engages men to grow Mo’s (slang for moustache) to raise awareness and funds for cancers affecting men. Last season, Wild defenseman Nick Schultz was one of the first NHL players to embrace the cause after the father of one of his closest friends developed prostate cancer and is currently battling against one of the more treatable forms of the disease. A 501(c)3 non-profit, Movember benefits the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.

The Wild’s Movember campaign, presented by Sun Country Airlines, starts today, Nov. 1. Wild players, and some staff members, are growing moustaches in support of the campaign. The “Minnesota Wild Mo Bros” have their own fundraising page, accessible on The Wild is urging fans to visit the fundraising page to donate. The NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer program has donated the first $5,000 to Movember’s Minnesota Wild Mo Bros team. Fans can purchase lower level or club level tickets to any Wild home game from Nov. 17-26 and the team will donate $10 from each ticket purchase to Movember, and enter each buyer into a drawing to win a travel voucher from Sun Country Airlines. The Wild will also take cash donations for Movember at each November game, at the Community Relations Booth at section 124.

Here's a photo from last year's Movember extravaganza. 
Here's a video showing the results...(I really didn't realize how much I don't like moustaches until I saw this video. Blech.)

I don't mind when hockey players aren't clean shaven. The moustache/beard growth is fine. José rocks that look. But just a moustache? Ummm...I don't know. If José participates, I'll be very curious to see how he looks by the end of the month.
Either way, it's a great cause and fun to boot. And thank goodness in December they can get rid of those moustaches!! 
This look is great...moustache only? I just can't picture it! But if it does happen, and there are photos, you will be able to find them here! ;o)
