D-Backs Zavada Reflects on National Mustache Honor
- Updated: December 2, 2009
Back in November, Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Clay Zavada took home an award bigger than the the Rolaids Relief Award. An honor more prestigious than the Cy Young or even the MVP. In fact, Zavada’s achievement transcended sports, as evidenced by the men nominated to stand alongside him. We are of course referring to his winning of the internationally-recognized “Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year Award.”
Recently, the 2009 recipient of this high honor sat down with members of the esteemed American Mustache Institute. Zavada speaks of the impact his mustache played in his dominance on the mound, its role in inspiring other mustached Americans and the avalanche of emotion he experienced after hearing his name announced as this year’s winner. Compelling and rich.
