Musio muses Mullet Championship
The USA Mullet Championships are going down right now, and one guy from Woodburn is all business up front about making one hairy lunge toward a strong finish.
Musio Chavez, a 2007 graduate of Woodburn High School, entered the championships along with 499 other mullets, and as of Tuesday morning he had advanced into the top 100. Musio and his handlers are dead set on ramping up local support via social media votes to move the shaggy Woodburn competitor to the next level.
"We'd love to share this exciting news with the community and let them know that a local man made it this far in this nationwide competition," said Lucy Gantman of Keizer, spokeswoman for Musio and his mullet. "We'd also love to get Musio exposure so people in our community can have the opportunity to vote for him to make the top 25 mullets in the USA., before voting ends on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8.59 p.m."
Lucy stressed that Musio was raised in Woodburn, and as a young boy he had big goals of success and making a difference in the world.
"He looked up to many, although athletes inspired him the most," Lucy said. "A number of these athletes adopted the 'Business in the Front, Party in the Back' lifestyle and hairstyle: the mullet. And from there, he knew it was a goal he would reach someday.
"Far into his journey now, he has battled hard as a wrestler, MMA fighter, and Juris Doctor student," she added. "He is on his way to receiving his license to practice Law in Oregon, and he graduated from Concordia University before it permanently closed its doors."
Lucy said that Musio took the Oregon State Bar exam then "threw himself into the mullet lifestyle."
Musio is modest about his mullet, and said he is very appreciative of the support, especially that of his home community.
"To vote for me, all you have to do is like my photo (on Facebook), which is located at the link below," Musio encouraged, providing a Facebook link. "Or, you can go to the USA Mullet Championships Facebook page scroll through the other 99 contestants and find me on there then 'like' my picture there."
