OK, here we go. No cheating.

Jason Giambi played high school baseball with four other players who made the major leagues. The first person to e-mail me with the names of three of the players and the name of the high school wins the mustache that will be given away today at Yankee Stadium. It will be mailed out to you today.

You must include the names of three players and the correct name of the high school. Also enclose your name and where you want the mustache sent. You also must agree not to use the fake mustache to commit any crimes or pretend you’re Don Mattingly.

Of course, you also must vote for Jason Giambi 500 times or so. That’s a given.

If you have already won something on the blog, please give others a chance.

This is literally the dumbest thing I have ever done as a journalist.

UPDATE, 9:20 a.m.: Stop e-mailing, we have a winner. Congratulations to Alexandra of New York City.

UPDATE, 9:26 a.m.: I’m serious, stop e-mailing!

The Big G played with his brother Jeremy, Cory Lidle, Aaron Small and Shawn Wooten at South Hills HS in West Covina, Calif.

UPDATE, 10:03 a.m.: Alexandra e-mailed to say she’s thrilled to win but isn’t sure how good a 5-4, 100-pound woman will look in a ‘stache. All I can say is that any woman who knows her Giambi trivia has a lot going for her already. I would advise you to avoid The Big G himself, Alexandra. He’s a bit sweaty.

I’m aghast to say that 100 people e-mailed with answers. As Judge Smails might say, don’t you people have jobs? Hmmm? Hmmm?
