The only thing funnier than Mr. Millar’s lip fur on this Sunday afternoon was the commentary provided by MASN announcers Jim Hunter and Jim Palmer. Somehow the always topical Mary Poppins was referenced while a certain German dictator was not. Somewhere Charlie Chaplin made sad eyes.
And in some ways the follicular folly reminds me of Crash Davis’ advice for Nuke LaLoosh in Bull Durham: “If you win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back and the press’ll think you’re colorful. Until you win 20 in the show, however, it means you are a slob.” Sadly for Millar, he’s far closer to the latter at this point in his fading career. Nice ‘stache though.
