Goodbye, Dale Thayer’s mustache

After Saturday night’s game, the Mets cut reliever Dale Thayer and with him, his amazing mustache.

Thayer’s mustache appeared in four games for the Mets. The mustache defied both description and the telephoto lenses of any AP cameramen covering those games.

Thayer will head to Buffalo, but where the mustache goes from here is anyone’s guess. Perhaps it catches on above another Major League lip or takes time off to travel.

Or maybe Dale Thayer’s mustache retires into the sunset, remembered only in Flushing folklore and a couple of screengrabs.
