Rueben Foster Announces Commitment to Auburn With Ink

Talk about commitment! While most NCAA Division One football recruits show their support for their soon-to-be teams by doning a hat or a sweater, Rueben Foster is showing that he’s will to make a lifetime commitment to Auburn University. The top rated highschool linebacker in the nation, Foster recently announced his intent to attend the storied football school. And showed his dedication by getting the Auburn logo tattooed on his forearm…really big. The tattoo covers most of his gigantic forearm and shows that Foster wants nothing more than to play for his favorite college. Is it the best idea? Not really, but we kind of like it. It shows a love of the team’s tradtion, and a dedication the the squad over himself that we hope translates into a productive collegiate career and eventually some cash in the National Football League. So give ’em hell Rueben, we’re rooting for you!

 

Alicia Sacramone’s Tattoo

With her recent medal at the 2011 World Gymnastics Championships, Alicia Sacramone became the most decorated female athlete in the history of the competition. With her neck tattoo, she’s also…well…one of the most decorated female athletes in the history of the competition. Sacramone, who competed in the 2008 Bejing Olympics and who looks to compete in 2012 has the Olympic symbol inked on the back of her neck. She got it right after the 2008 games, which weren’t really a great time for her, but which yielded her a Silver medal regardless. The tattoo is presumably to show team spirit, which Sacramone is known for having in spades. We don’t love the low placement of the ink, but we love the spirit of it and think it looks very good on her.

Bad Fan Tattoo Of The Day :The ESPN Guy

What. Is. He. Thinking? Yes folks, that’s a real tattoo of the ESPN logo on someone’s face. Hoping it would get him enough attention that he’d make it on to ESPN’s Sportscenter, this severely mislead young man decided that he would get the network tattooed on the side of his face above his eyebrow. This is easily one of the worst ideas in the history of bad ideas. It’s a corporate logo for a corporation that he doesn’t work for that covers sports and he’s not an athlete. We could understand if an up and coming NFL player got ESPN inked on him as a reminder to his opponents that he will make highlights out them, but this is just a normal guy who now will conjure images of Chris Berman wherever he goes. We’d love to support this kind of stupidity, but we can’t think a reason why we would. You’ve failed my friend, no top ten plays, no WebGem, no Espy, just a stupid tattoo.
