Fans tend to get pretty excited over their favorite football teams, even seemingly jinxing their teams with some over-the-top actions — like this Houston Texans fan in 2012. But one Seattle Seahawks fan might be right on the money.
Tim Connors, a diehard Seahawks fan, did what many nutty NFL fans tend to do and got a tattoo of the Seattle seahawk on his forearm. However, Connors added a unique little caveat that he could be regretting in a few weeks, as his tattoo is accompanied by the phrase “Super Bowl XLVIII Champs.”
Connors isn’t just any old bandwagon fan looking to find a place among the Seahawks faithful, though. In fact, Connors says he got the tattoo before the 2013 season, meaning he had no idea Seattle would make the playoffs — never mind be playing in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. And, while the gesture seems a bit cuckoo, the hardcore fan certainly won’t accept such a label.
“I’m not crazy,” Connors told KOMO News in Seattle. “I’m not crazy at all.”
The Seahawks did finish the season tied for the best record in the NFL (13-3) and will host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in hopes of clinching a berth in Super Bowl XLVIII. Even so, there are plenty of variables that could take hold between now and Feb. 2 that could have Connors feeling regret, if nothing else.
