Eagles fan gets ‘2019 Super Bowl Champs’ tattoo (pic)
It seems like every few months the Internet will take note of some numbskull sports fan getting a tattoo professing devotion to a particular player or predicting eventual championship glory for their favorite team.
These boastful inked proclamations typically are made concerning the next Super Bowl or World Series or Stanley Cup for what have you. But one Philadelphia Eagles fan allowed himself some breathing room by predicting a Super Bowl victory for his beloved NFL team … in 2019.
Barstool Sports received the following email from a reader concerning the tattoo:
“What’s up. So yesterday my buddy decided to get a Eagles 2019 Super Bowl tattoo. Why? I have no f***ing clue, got to be the dumbest mother f***er lol. He even tagged Carson wentz.”
Given that the Eagles traded up to the No. 2 position in the 2016 NFL Draft, so Wentz may be in play in the pick, meaning if the Eagles were to win the Super Bowl in 2019, Wentz — and definitely not Sam Bradford, apparently — could be part of the championship run.
But that doesn’t make the decision to tag Wentz — much less get the tattoo in the first place — any wiser of a decision. Obviously.
Perhaps the guy deserves some semblance of credit for recognizing a Super Bowl in the year 2017 — or 2018 — isn’t in the cards for the Eagles. Further, he’s got a long time before he tattoo gambit is proven to be hilariously and embarrassingly incorrect.
But hey, at least he did allow himself some wiggle room. Hopefully this guy and this guy and this guy and this guy and this guy have made the same alterations, as their respective boastful tattoo predictions didn’t pan out for them.
After all, rarely does it happen that folks who get title tattoos make out like this Seahawks fan.
But hey, at least this Cubs fan had the good sense to leave his predictive championship tattoo some wiggle room as well.
