Nationals fan will sport incredible curly ‘W’ beard at Coors Field

If you watch Wednesday’s Nationals-Rockies game, there’s a good chance you’ll see the fan with the enormous curly ‘W’ beard pictured below, because he is exactly the type of fan that camera operators and producers seek out between innings. Maybe MASN’s Dan Kolko can score an interview.

“Going to the Washington Nationals vs. Colorado Rockies game on Wednesday,” Eric Brooks wrote on Instagram. “Practicing a freestyle beard to wear to the game! (It’s sloppy because I did it very quick)”

You may remember Brooks as the guy who sported a beard in tribute to Alex Ovechkin at a Capitals-Avalanche game in Denver last season. Sarah Kogod profiled the former Rockville resident, brewer and veteran of facial hair competitions in November.

Brooks has done a Nats beard before. I’d say the current version he’s working on — sloppy or not — is even more impressive.
