Here’s a free piece of advice for anyone out there who may one day lose a bet that forces you to get a tattoo you don’t want: You don’t have to go through with it.
Unfortunately, nobody told that to Brady Wagner, a Broncos fan who made a bet with his friend, a Patriots fan, for Sunday’s game. A video on FOX Sports explains that if the Broncos had won, the Pats fan would have had to get a Tim Tebow tattoo. The Patriots’ victory meant there’d be a new Brady-Bill Belichick combination, only this time it’d be a tattoo of the legendary coach’s signature on Brady Wagner’s back. (I might have gone for a picture of Tom Brady‘s face, but that’s just me.)
Now, this was not the Super Bowl (not that making such a crazy bet for the Super Bowl would make this a good idea). It was a Week 14 matchup with not a ton on the line. The Broncos’ loss probably won’t keep them out of the playoffs, and the Patriots were heading there anyway.
Put all of that to the side, though, and please, remember, if you ever make such a bet with your friends, you do not have to permanently etch anything into your body. You won’t lose your friends as a result, and they’ll probably just tell you they never thought you’d actually go through with it anyway.
If only someone had told that to Brady Wagner before he got his Belichick tramp stamp.
