Not much says ‘I’m in between jobs and constantly posting a rambling stream of consciousness on Facebook’ like a preemptive Super Bowl champion tattoo. I’m not a smart man, but there’s one thing I know in life: there are absolutely no guarantees in life. If there were, we all would have guaranteed Kevin O’Shea to beat his athletically inferior little brother Danny down Cherry Hill in Little Giants.
After the Atlanta Falcons blew a 28-3 3rd quarter lead in Super Bowl LI, every fan should have been reminded of the unpredictability of sports. But, you just can’t reason with some people. The minority will continue to defy logic. Like the few people who give a ‘thumbs down’ on a puppy video on YouTube, a fan whose Super Bowl hopes rest on the throwing arm of Blake Bortles will predict his team winning sports’ most coveted prize.
But, he is far from alone. Check out these other boners who inaccurately declared their team’s victory before in the form of permanent ink before spending the profits they made from selling drugs to get it removed.
These tattoos will not stop. We as a civilization will never learn. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
