What do you do when you get bored?

I have done some really weird things to kill boredom, but growing a moustache just because am bored has never really crossed my mind. It is something that the English Cricketers are doing as a collective item. Apparently, this isn't a novel idea. The Kiwi Cricketers did it for the inaugural 20-20 encounter against the Aussies earlier this year and so did the Australian tennis players for the 2000 Davis Cup final against the Spaniards. On both those occasions, the moustached men ended up on the losing side. [I don't know about moustaches, but I do know of one team which ended up being hugely successful after (a majority of ) its team members shaved their heads clean - Boston Red Sox, World Series 2004.] Moustaches or no moustaches, Vaughan's men do have a tough tour ahead - so, they better not get bored in the middle.

The Australians did it a few "Ashes tours" ago. All players had to draw from a hat, the particular style to be grown on tour. This was the origins of Jason Gillespie's beard, which he never removed. Remember Mark Taylors, aweful, 1970's moustache!
