Just when you thought tattoos couldn’t get any more ridiculous, this main is seen with a Pete Rose tattoo on his leg. The very idea of a Pete Rose tattoo is not that crazy, but the nature of it seems over the top. It’s a full on picture of Rose sliding into a base with the field in the background.
This is not your ordinary Pete Rose tattoo.
Something tells me this guy got the tattoo prior to all the business with Rose betting on baseball. Maybe he should invest in tattoo removal, but judging by the size and detail of the tattoo, that removal could cost a pretty penny. Maybe we can start a Facebook group asking for donations to help this poor lost soul.
In case you don’t know the story behind Pete Rose, he was one of the greatest players to play the game, but received a lifetime ban from baseball in his coaching days for betting on baseball. He would likely be elected in to the Hall of Fame if he were ever to get the ban removed, but as long as Bud Selig is around that seems like a pipe dream for Rose.
If I were this fan, I’d start investing in a lot more pants. Showing off you’re a fan of one of baseball’s most controversial players doesn’t seem to get you anywhere. He’s not enough of a badass to play that card, and others will think you’re an idiot for going to that length to support a player.
Either way, it seems like this guy can’t win.
