In hindsight, a Blues 2015 Stanley Cup Champs tattoo was a bad idea (pic/vid)


After yet another stellar regular season campaign, the St. Louis Blues again were ousted in the first round for the third consecutive season, the latest coming at the hands of the Minnesota Wild in six games.

A contest put on by St. Louis sports radio’s The Rizzuto Show on 105.7 FM The Point posed a question to fans asking them what they would be willing to do to get a free Blues tattoo.

Listener Mike, hopefully in jest, gave the following horrible, horrible response: “I would let the team bang my wife.” Yeesh. Let’s hope his better half has a good sense of humor about such things.

Somehow, someway, Mike’s response was deemed the best of the bunch of those submitted, meaning he was the very lucky winner of the aforementioned Blues-themed tattoo.

But it wasn’t simply some regular old Blues tattoo. Nope. It was a 2015 St. Louis Blues Stanley Cup Champions tattoo. So, a few weeks ago, Mike strolled into Big Dave’s The Ink Spot in Troy, Mo., and got some ink work done.

The video is dated April 16, putting it somewhere around the time or just before the Blues-Wild series opened, meaning there was hope at the time. A mere 10 days later? Not so much.

And the rest, as they say, is history. Perhaps the Blues will hoist the Cup in the 2018. That way, it’s simply making a few alterations to the “5” and Mike will be set. Or not. But hey, it’s a pretty nice tattoo, if not an accurate one.

Hopefully this guy and this guy and this guy and this guy have the ability to one day make the same alterations, as their respective boastful tattoo predictions didn’t pan out for them, either.

After all, rarely does it happen that folks who get title tattoos make out like this Seahawks fan. This Washington Nationals fan, however, still has hope.

But hey, at least this Cubs fan had the good sense to leave his predictive championship tattoo some wiggle room.
