There truly is something remarkable about mustaches. And in less than a week, new Jaguars owner Shahid Khan has one of the all-time great mustaches in NFL history. And according to a recent New York Times story, it's Khan's calling card.

"He is described as a private person with a gregarious, salesman’s personality," the Times' Richard Sandomir wrote on November 30. "With long, wavy hair and a thick mustache that ends in waxed tips, Khan cuts a somewhat rakish figure."

Added Ron Guenther, the former athletic director at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, Khan's alma mater: “That mustache didn’t come out of nowhere. That’s his signature.”

Well, we applaud and embrace it. And so too, it appears, do Jags fans. Details via the Florida Times-Union:
Jaguar fans don’t know a whole lot yet about Shahid Khan, the Illinois truck-parts magnate who has agreed to buy the team. But they do know he has an awesome mustache. … There are already T-shirts around town showing the mustache on the Jaguars logo, and several websites have popped up.
The Times-Union says that "Khan won’t be at tonight’s Monday Night Football game between the Jaguars and the San Diego Chargers — he said last week that he’ll be in New York, prepping for an NFL Finance Committee meeting where his bid go buy the team will be considered, and that he’d rather leave the spotlight on outgoing owners Wayne and Delores Weaver."

And because you asked for it (okay, you didn't -- we were curious), here are how some other NFL luminaries would look with their very own Mr. Tickles. You're welcome.

No homage to mustachioed gentlemen would be complete without a nod to those players and coaches who unwittingly made it possible for the rest of us to look less ridiculous. Again, you're welcome.

Thats the first time I have seen Brady NOT look like a pussy. He should seriously consider it during the season.

Is it just me, or do Peyton Manning and Tom Brady look way more intimidating with a manly 'stache?  Peyton should come back after his injury fightin' with a meaner image and a wicked 'stache.  Brady should just dump the whole pretty boy thing and get with the old skool NFL look... people would like and him better.

I'll concede that all arabic people look alike, but you've got no sense to style if you think Sadaam's stache holds a candle to Khan's.
