It takes guts to rock a mustache nowadays. Not everyone can properly sport them, and most do it as a joke nowadays rather than use it as a fashion statement. It really takes a certain kind of man (or woman) to do it, especially on national television. Enter Terps baseball righty reliever Bobby Ruse.
Ruse has been sporting the ‘stache for quite awhile now, but the national television audience is just getting a taste of it. When Ruse entered the game Saturday night against the Gamecocks in relief of starting pitcher Mike Shawaryn, the commentators immediately did what they did best: comment on things like mustaches.
