Jays honor Gaston with facial hair, win

Travis Snider Travis Snider's fake mustache was both ridiculous and awesome.

Using eye-black to imitate Cito Gaston's mustache, Snider led off the game with a homer and added an RBI single an inning later to send the retiring manager out with an 8-4 victory over the Yankees in his last home game. Snider's leadoff homer was the team's 245th of the season, breaking the team record.

"It's a great way to honor him and I'm proud to be able to say I played for him," Snider told the Toronto Star . "I couldn't think of a better night [for the record] to happen, to honor him and what he's helped us with."

Gaston was honored before the game. Gaston started his second stint as the team's manager in 2008, 11 years after his 10-year run with the team that included two World Series titles and four division crowns.

"You could just feel the electricity," said catcher John Buck. "That's how much Cito has meant to this organization, this team and all the players he has either managed, coached or played with."
-- C. Trent Rosecrans

I loved it. It was also awesome when he kept it for his second at bat, after every other player had gotten rid of it after the first inning because it was uncomfortable.  There was one shot of it running down into Sniders mouth.  Priceless.

Could his mustache be any worse?  I registered for an account just so I could make fun of it.  It looks crooked/fake.  HILARIOUS!!!!
