There’s NFL fandom and then there’s getting a huge tattoo on your left forearm to honor your favorite team. There’s NFL optimism and then there’s getting a huge tattoo on your left forearm to honor the Super Bowl championship that your favorite team has yet to (and almost certainly won’t) win.
Meet the left forearm of Chris Brown. The Midland, Texas, resident tattooed it recently to commemorate the Super Bowl title he hopes his favorite team, the Houston Texans, will soon win. For his sake it better be soon. Brown’s tattoo also includes the specific Super Bowl he expects the Texans to win: Super Bowl XLVI, to be played this February in Indianapolis.
Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh(notes) is about as lithe as NBA players come. The skinny All-Star doesn’t seem to boast a whole lot of real estate when it comes to tattoo-able acreage, and yet he’s still managed to shove a good 20 years’ worth of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally tats into one massive back tattoo.
Yikes. There is, um, quite a bit going on in that one. A picture of Chris taking in his ink follows the jump.
There is a lockout in our midst, so we shouldn’t blame the rich and bored for acting rich and bored. And assaulting your skin with a series of tats is a heck of a lot better than following up a 12-donut breakfast with a three-burrito lunch, as we saw from several NBA players during the 1998-99 lockout.
So ink away, Chris. From sport.yahoo.com
