Pittsburgh Pirates Fan Makes Bold Statement With Tattoo!!

21inkedd in Sports

Baseball fans are some of America's most dedicated sports fans, they proudly follow the nation's oldest pastime year upon year.

And back their team to go the distance, and every once in a while one fan takes their love of baseball to new heights. Pittsburgh Pirates fan Andrew Broadwater is such a fan!!
The World Series is still a couple of months away but Andrew already knows the winner...or at leash he hopes he does after getting his prediction tattooed on his calf!!! Predicting the Pirates to win the 2015 championship is definitely a bold move, for the past two years the team have been knocked out in the playoffs and the last time they actually claimed the championship it was 1979!!

The Pirates last championship came in 1979!!!

If the Pirates do fail to win the series this year Andrew will be left with a rather awkward reminder, but if they win he'll be the proud owner of a permanent memory. Thankfully the tattoo was done in good spirit and not all that serious;

"I’ve been joking around with my wife for about a month now saying, 'hey, I’m gonna get the Pirates championship tattooed on my leg...And she said, 'nah, you won’t do that, you’re not that crazy...she went to work today and I had the day off from work, and I went down and I got it tattooed on me, and there it is."

    Not to be deterred Andrew wholeheartedly believes his team will do him proud; "I think this will be the first time since 1979. I think the championship banner will go up at PNC Park next April on Opening Day."..."Last year I still felt we were missing a couple key players...but this year -- AJ Burnett returned, the pitching’s strong, Andrew McCutchen's playing lights out, Polanco and Marte in the outfield."

    Of course he does accept the chance it may not workout for the Pirates and is already well aware of the consequence; "There’s no way I can cover it up. It’s there, so I’m praying for the best."... Sports fans and tattoos really are a deadly mix, on the bright side at least it will be a one of a kind tattoo!!
