At this summer’s FIFA World Cup we saw all kinds of fans supporting their country from the beautiful to the barmy, but nothing beats this Washington Nationals fan’s beard.

Eric Brooks has spent the past three years growing and shaping his facial hair into a magnificent spectacle which attracted the MLB cameras prior to Washington’s game against Colorado.

Nats fan

He said he has been a Nationals fan since the franchise arrived in Washington D.C. in 2005, but he and his father were Washington Senators fans before the major league outfit arrived.

Brooks explained to he has no plans of losing the beard in the near future and said he uses beard-specific oil to look after it.

Speaking to, he said: “They actually have beard oil now that they make that you can buy. It took about 45 minutes or so to refine the look and make it look nice.”

The fan revealed he uses a combination of the beard oil, glue and a hair dryer to create the look. Brooks added that he receives plenty of compliments about it at games.

Despite the fan’s heroic beard which can be seen here, the Rockies completed an upset by beating the Nationals 6-4 in Denver yesterday.

After the victory the Rockies (41-60) remained stranded at the foot of the National League West division, 16 games behind league leaders San Francisco.

The Nationals (55-44) are narrowly leading the National League East division by one game ahead of Atlanta Braves.

Washington travel to Cincinnati Reds for a three-game series over the weekend starting on Friday night while the Rockies host the Pittsburgh Pirates.
