070608_18311.jpgMuch like Grey Goose and Red Bull, Jason Giambi’s ‘stache is a sensation that is sweeping the nation.

I snapped this exclusive cell phone photo of some fans at the game on Sunday wearing their own ‘staches as tribute to The Big G. Hopefully more people will join in tonight and tomorrow.

The ‘stache even has its own blog. These guys are giving away fake mustaches. How great is that?

In the interest of historical accuracy, I asked The Big G on Sunday when he started growing the ‘stache. We came to the conclusion that it was roughly May 23. Here are his stats in the 40 games he has played since:

PA: 158
AB: 129
R: 28
H: 39
2B: 7
3B: 1
HR: 10
RBI: 32
BB: 20
SO: 27
BA: .302
OBP: .424
SLG: .605
OPS: 1.029

Pretty impressive. Perhaps all the Yankees should try it.
