Ron Burgundy's Mustache Has Competition in Austin Pruitt

I don't know how to put this but, this is kind of a big deal

Austin Pruitt's mustache is made of dreams.

The Tampa Bay Rays probably awarded RHP Austin Pruitt a 40-man roster spot because of his ability to pitch well in baseball games, but his ability to grow a majestic mustache certainly didn't hurt. The question is, can he rival the immaculately manicured Ron Burgundy? I would like to extend to you an invitation to the mustache party.

Smaller Mustache Party

Will Ferrell only wore it to record Anchorman (or maybe he never really let go), but Pruitt chooses to carry that beautiful caterpillar with him day in and day out. As Ron Burgundy would say, don't act like you're not impressed.

Pruitt pulls the mustache off well in at least 60% of photos taken of him, and 60% of the time it works every time.

So what do you think? Who wore it better? Does Austin Pruitt have a career as an anchorman if baseball doesn't work out? Or literally any profession in the '70s?

Stay classy, Tampa Bay.
