Introducing the World Beard and Mustache Champ - best beard ever?

Is this a beard only a mother could love?

Facial hair fanatic Madison Rowley took home the top prize this weekend at the annual World Beard and Mustache Championships.  Yup, beard contests are a thing! 

Rowley took first in the Garibaldi category as well as the top prize overall in Portland, Oregon this weekend.  (FYI: The Garibaldi category is named for an Italian national hero) 

Think you've got what it takes to beat this beard bro? Stop shaving now! You've got just under 365 days to get it growing.
