Is Sully The Top 'Mustached-American'?
The admittedly tongue-in-cheek American Mustache Institute has
nominated Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger as one of the years
With online balloting underway, Sully faces some fierce
competition for the "Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of
the Year" award for 2009, some who are better known than
others. The website says the contest is not about who has the
best mustache, but rather which finalist is "the best contributor
to the Mustached American way of life."
Others nominated run the gamut from soldiers serving in Iraq,
Attorney General Eric Holder, television personality Bill Geist,
and a man who rescued his elderly neighbor whom he found lying in
the snow in freezing weather. Captain Sullenberger, as you know,
successfully ditched his A320 in the Hudson River last January
saving all 155 people on board.
Polls are open until Tuesday, October 20th.
