A few years ago, Temple basketball coach Fran Dunphy made a promise to Dionte Christmas. Now, he's going to keep his word.
Since his former standout player has earned his degree, Dunph is going to shave his trademark mustache, the one he's been sporting for 40 years. The honors will take place late Thursday morning on campus, with Christmas by his side for the historic moment.
No word yet on whether - as was the case when New York Jets' quarterback Joe Namath got rid of his Fu Manchu mustache some four decades ago - it's going to be made into a commercial.
