Rick Ankiel has a cool new 'stache

Latest pro athlete to make a curious facial-hair decision: Cardinals outfielder Rick Ankiel.

"I think it looks good," he said.

(He didn't really say that.)

But if it's a slump buster, we'll take it. Ankiel's our boy in the head-to-head fantasy league and he went 3-4, hit his first homer and drove in two runs Thursday. Who said superstition doesn't pay off?

Ankiel's new look is similar to the style Jason Giambi rocked last July. Take off that batting helmet, he sorta looks like Joe Pantoliano from Memento. Memento. Good movie.

Naturally, Twitter maniac Barry Zito had the scoop. Zito is now shirtless in his profile pic. Is a mustache to follow?

The mustache has been done before. Surprise us all with a Rutherford B. Hayes and then I will be impressed.

He also had a ridiculous catch last night, showing the the stache will make you run faster and jump further.
