End of an era: Keith Hernandez may lose the mustache

Keith Hernandez has long been defined by the luscious patch of hair settled beneath his nose.

In 2007, his mustache was voted the best in sports history by the American Mustache Institute. But now, Hernandez says his "stache is trash."

A longtime spokesman for Just for Men, Hernandez was contractually obligated to use the product. Now that he no longer appears in commercials for Just for Men, he is not required to color his stache. 

The mustache has apparently become a bit too gray for Hernandez to handle.
