(WSCR) Brewers closer John Axford finished the 2011 season with 46 saves and an ERA of 1.95, but that’s not what has people talking right now.

On Friday, Axford will travel to Chicago for the American Mustache Institute’s annual ‘Stache Bash at Joe’s Bar on Weed St.

Axford and his ‘stache are hoping to take home the “Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year” award.

Axford joined The Boers and Bernstein Show on Thursday to promote the upcoming mustache-themed party.
