BOSTON (AP) — A New England Patriots fan is a little too quick to celebrate. Thirty-one-year-old Burke O’Connell got a tattoo declaring the Pats Super Bowl 50 champs.
Of course, the Patriots won’t be in the big game. O’Connell got his ink across his calf two days before the Patriots lost to the Denver Broncos.
The black-and-white tattoo shows the Lombardi Trophy rising above the Patriots’ logo, along with the number “50” and the word “Champs.”
O’Connell, who now lives in Los Angeles, tells The Boston Globe he has no regrets. He says his chin tattoo of an ex-girlfriend’s name — now covered up — was much worse.
