This smile looks rather forced.
In a sad turn of events, the Mets have decided to release Jose Valentin. MetsBlog
is reporting that the Mets have officially let go of the Former-Stache
, Tony Armas Jr., and Junior Spivey. The move officially closes the door on the Mets chapter of Jose’s life, and possibly that of his life in the Bigs altogether.
You may remember that last week, we posted a Better Know a Metstache on Jose. In the post, we discussed how much we’d like to see Jose make the team this year. We felt as though he’d be a huge inspiration for David, and a positive influence on his hairy journey. Sadly, that’s not going to happen.
We’ll miss ya Jose. Keep on spreadin’ that porn-stache vibe of yours.
Let’s end another winning week at The Wright Stache with a nod to our favorite (and finest) loser. Look in those eyes. There’s a sadness there. An emptiness. As we put this week to bed and reflect on some of our finer moments, remember to be thankful for how fortunate you are. Call your mom and tell her that you love her. Plant a tree. And do what you can to get David Wright to grow a mustache. We did our part by…
Next week will be even more fantastic at The Wright Stache. We’ll be helping you look good and sound good with two big announcements.
Of course, we’ll be checking in over the weekend, so hopefully you will, too. We’re not going to drunk dial or booty text you on Saturday night, though.
As always, it’s been a pleasure serving you. Please continue to spread the gospel of The Wright Stache with the company that you keep.
Help us decide before one of us gets hurt.
Here at The Wright Stache, we like us some good old fashioned debatin’. And not the kind that ends in hand shakes – the kind that ends in fist fights. So when we all sat down and tried to plead our cases for our favorite Metstaches of all time, things got ugly. Names were called. Fingers were pointed. Mets memorabilia was shattered. Broken glass was….well, everywhere. So we figure the only way this is ever going to get settled is if we get our readers’ opinions. So, here goes:
Who sported your favorite Metstache?
- Keith Hernandez (72.0%, 313 Votes)
- Mike Piazza (10.0%, 45 Votes)
- Howard Johnson (6.0%, 27 Votes)
- John Franco (6.0%, 25 Votes)
- Jose Valentin (6.0%, 24 Votes)
Total Voters: 434
We mean no disrespect, but from here on out, you're just Jose to us.
Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for a gang of Mets fans to sit around a fire with a cold case of beer and talk mustache-lore of past and present. The usual suspects often come to mind… Hernandez, HoJo, Franco, Piazza and the like. But often, a very prominent stache is over looked. A stache that should be a lot more fresh on people’s minds. And that’s the stache of the man himself, The Stache. Of course I’m referring to Jose Valetin, the veteran infielder who made an amazing resurgence as the star second basemen of the 2006 Mets. The angular slant of his dark brown stache was commonly viewed as being porno-esque, and earned him the nickname, “The Stache”. Read more »
Outside The Wright Stache headquarters.
Yesterday marked the first full day of our movement: an uphill battle that we’re certain will be met with challenges of varying degrees and intensities. We fear not. Throughout the day, we received a mixed-bag of feedback from folks of all walks of life. There were those that showed nothing but support; martyrs who were ready to die for our cause. For that, we are truly grateful. There were those that were angry: People who took the stache in vain and shouted “witchcraft” and “blasphemy”. There were some that were downright confused, conflicted, or disturbed by the notion of creating an entire movement behind an individual’s future mustache. And there were some who simply scoffed at the thought of such a ludicrous challenge.
Towards those, we confidently smile. Read more »
