Seahawks fans are crazy — their stadium is the loudest in the nation and they’re notorious for having the fervor of Eagles fans, minus the violence and crime.
One fan, Tim Connors, decided that he was so confident in the Seahawks’ potential victory in this year’s Super Bowl, he got the logo with “XL VIII Champions” tattooed on the inside of his right wrist. Although everyone with common sense would call this a terrible idea, Connors has no regrets.
He told KOMO, “I’m not crazy. I’m not crazy at all. There’s no tiny little bit of doubt at all — anywhere in my head.” He estimated that roughly 95 percent of fans approved of the move, with a few worrying that his tattoo could jinx the possibility of a Seahawks Superbowl victory.
Lonnie Moon, his tattoo artist, said he tried to convince Connors to back down due to the jinx issue, but Connors ended up changing his mind.
“He’s right, you know what, you think like that, you’re not a real fan,” Moon said.
The tattoo shop, Good Karma Body Art, was inspired by Connors’ fanaticism and is now offering discounted rates for Seahawks tattoos. They usually charge $150 an hour, and have reduced it to $100.
Let’s hope they win, or at least make it to the big game, for Connors’ wrist’s sake.
