After finishing up the season with a team record 46 saves, John Axford is looking to close (see what I did there?) out the Arizona Diamondbacks and move his Milwaukee Brewers one step closer to the World Series.

Throughout the season, sometime contributor Lou Olsen from Reviewing the Brew has unearthed some unknown "Mustache Facts" about the record setting closer's cookie duster.

Here are some more that you might not have known:

John Axford’s Mustache is always wearing his power suit.

John Axford’s Mustache takes his afternoon tea in the east wing.

John Axford’s Mustache recently had a baby, Derek Holland’s mustache (see here).

John Axford’s Mustache is known to many in Central America as, “Los pelos dorados de la cara de los Dioses”, (rough translation: Golden face hairs of the gods)

John Axford’s Mustache thinks that Adam West was the best Batman.

John Axford’s Mustache does not smell fear, he tastes it.

For more John Axford Mustache Facts...set aside an afternoon, hit up Reviewing the Brew and click around. 

And, if you're looking for another way to celebrate the lower nose garment of Mr. Axford, why not nominate the Brewers closer for the “Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year" award.
