>>> why was a female snowboarder wearing a fake mustache during her competition? well, we all know that a lot of athletes have strange good luck rituals and she didn't want to leave anything to chance. it may look silly, but who's laughing now? it worked. she won a gold medal in sunday's women snowboard cross . she led from start to finish.

>> right on. she looks cute with a mustache, too. never looked so good. we're going to wear one too, here.
