Beardos rule!: See the many moods of Eric Brooks's amazing facial hair

Eric Brooks's beard was already a favorite among area connoisseurs: Last month, he won the Work of Art prize from the Boulder Facial Hair Club.

But now, his wonderful whiskers are getting national exposure in the Washington Post and NHL TV, as well as local love from the Coloradoan, the newspaper in his current home of Fort Collins.

We've got the deets, plus videos and photos from Brooks's Facebook page proving that his beard has a lot more than one mood. Check them out below.
