Rangers pitcher Derek Holland has been sporting a mustache for the latter part of the season. The wispy little thing began in late July, and the pitcher initially decided he would keep it until the Dallas Cowboys lost a game. He was pitching so well with it that he decided to keep it around for even longer.
Even though Holland has what Timothy Burke, who provided the above image for us, called “the grossest mustache you’ve ever seen outside of middle school,” the fans love him for it. They showed up to Saturday’s Game 2 of the ALDS in Arlington wearing fake ‘staches of their own. Peep the pics:
Mustaches on females will never quite look right, but at least the fans are supporting the team. And don’t get the wrong idea about things — Holland recognizes how pathetic his ‘stache is.
“It’s the worst mustache in baseball,” Holland has said. “I could maybe try Rogaine. But I doubt that’s going to work. I can’t really do anything to it. I just have to let it go. It’s fun. It’s all in good fun. And it’s gross at the same time.”
Hey, the guy went 4-0 in September with it. Why change things up?
