2: The number of World Series titles for the Twins of Minnesota.
2: The number of World Series MVP awards in those championship seasons given to starting pitchers with epic moustaches.
1: The number of starting pitchers on the 2010 Twins with an equally legendary crumb catcher.
Coincidence? I think not.
1987: Frank Viola's moustache led the Twins to victories in Games 1 and 7, securing Minnesota's first lip-jacket MVP.
1991: Jack Morris delivered one of the most memorable World Series performances, pitching 10 score innings with a small ferret hanging under his nose.
The magic of Carl Pavano's 'stache has been well documented. If (or rather when) the Twins make it to the 2010 World Series, do not be surprised to see Pavstache taking the mound in games 1 and 4 (and probably 7). And when Carl accepts the MVP award on behalf of his champagne-soaked lip tickler, remember the moustaches of Twins Championships past. It is meant to be.
