New Jags owner Khan is all about the mustache

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.

AFC Inactives, Week 9

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

The following are ACTIVE for today’s game: Ravens WR Donte Stallworth, Patriots G Logan Mankins

The following are INACTIVE:

Antonio Gates, TE, Chargers: Opposing defenses can’t bring him down, but apparently a bad case of plantar fasciitis is enough to knock Gates out of the game. If Gates could have played today, he would have been Superman. As it is, he’s still a TE superhero.

Owen Daniels, TE, Texans: He continues to struggle with injuries this season. Daniels played last week, catching one pass for eight yard, but he’s having multiple leg problems. A bad hamstring will keep him out this week.

Ryan Wendell, G, Patriots: The big casualty of the Logan Mankins re-signing is Wendell. He had been starting in Mankins’ place, but now that Mankins is back, Wendell is back to the bench.

Deion Branch, WR, Patriots:
Bothered by a hamstring, Branch - who's found new life in New England - won't play today. He hadn't practiced all week, so the news shouldn't be that surprising. Um, just kidding. He's active.

Jake Delhomme/Seneca Wallace, QB, Browns:
This means that, once again, Colt McCoy will start at QB for Cleveland.

Shawne Merriman, LB, Bills: Not a surprise, because of how late Merriman reported to his new team once he was claimed off waivers from San Diego. Expect him to be ready for next week's game.

Malcom Floyd/Legedu Naanee, WR, Chargers:
And somewhere, Philip Rivers is weeping. At least Antonio Gates is acti ... oh, never mind.

Patrick Chung, CB, Patriots:
He's been bothered by a knee injury, and he'll miss his second-straight game. It's unfortunate for New England, because Chung is a tackling machine.
