A fine set of lip luggage adorns many players within the Athens Fighting Centaurs, here are the best.

The Lady Ticklers.

Catcher - Chip 'Sarge' Saunders
A simplistic womb broom from the leader of the Centaurs.

A thick luscious soup strainer from the 19 year old.

A snot mop for the ages with an additional goaty

Third Base - Travis Rodriguez
Fine example of upper lipholstery

Short Stop - Roberto Suarez
Lovely manometer with a goaty to boot

Left Field - Vicente 'Gonzo' Chávez
A perfectly formed tea strainer from the man from Colombia.

Center Field - Vicente Acevedo
A beautifully trimmed lip rug.

A mouser that a middle-aged man would be proud of let alone a 16 year old kid.

Bristle batons to beat all bristle batons.

Relief Pitcher - Luke Lasalle
Bro-mo and a fine thick goatee.

Facial hair is a long-standing spectacle of OOTP and the BBA, so you're in good company. Shoeless even had a reoccurring "Mustache Spotlight" feature in his team news a few seasons ago.

I was only going to post awards that day but I'd seen Francisco Flores then there was mention of Davey Lopes on slack, hence the article.

Cool idea for awards, my man. I'm sure those trophies will be a hit.

It came from something I read about Athens/Greece and Dolphins, obvious choice of the yearly was gold so looked for dolphin figures and the crystal looked the best for monthly awards.

I think Vic did a league feature or media guide piece on facial hair also. It was amazing.

Fun stuff, Neil.

Glad you think so, my article style isn't total comedy but I do like to throw a bit in now and again. I know sometimes I may bore people with stories that I write, simple reason I find it hard to write stuff about stats, in fact I once asked for advice from a well known OOTP dynasty writer and they said "less story more stats", I understood them but find it hard to write about stats. Sorry but OT :cool:

Ha. I completely agree with you. I find writing about stats terribly boring. I always think, if you want a dump truck full of stats just look in the game, because I’m here to write out the awful stories in my head. That Dynasty writer gave you shitty advice.

Grasshopper before the Brewster your OOTP mind was blank, once you walk the path of the Brewster your mind will grow. ;) I actually purchased these two books because of the Brewster, it did help that I like Stephen Fry and also love history and myths.

I don't trust anyone who does not love Stephen Fry!

There is no "oh I kinda like him" or "he's pretty good" allowed when it comes to Stephen Fry.
