George Parros Does the Unthinkable

John Ulan/AP

That's right folks, George Parros is going to forever alter the course of world politics. and Going Five Hole are reporting that Parros will cut his hair and shave his mustache today. There's no telling what effect this will have on the fate of the free world, but we can only hope for the best.

Things may not be as dire as they appear though. As it turns out, this is a yearly event for Parros. From Sign On San Diego (whose meaning was lost long ago but is believed to mean "land of the long haired mustached guy" in German):

Parros will cut his hair and donate it to Locks of Love, a nonprofit Florida-based charity that provides hairpieces to children who've lost their hair because of medical reasons.

Since Parros began his pro hockey career, he has been growing his hair long each season to make a donation. The charity requires donated hair to be at least 10 inches long and cannot be bleached.

Fans were invited to join Parros in donating their hair, and the Ducks said all the spots were filled for today's “Cut for the Kids” event at the Newport Sports Museum in Newport Beach.

Before Parros goes through with this, I think that he needs to do one simple thing -- post a YouTube with him yelling the phrase "I am all that is man and you will bow to my MAN-stache!!" from the top of a mountain. George, let's make this happen.


  1. George! No! Your man-stache was my beacon, ever guiding me to truth! What will I do without it?! I will be aimless, adrift!

  2. A friend's son played Junior A with Parros. He is very smart (exceedingly so) and a nice guy.
