Dolphins fans and awesome tat/detachable body part ink seem to go together like pants and legs. Every team has crazy fans, but this trend seems to go beyond the simple insanity that’s commonplace among those crazies. The hypothesis I’ve arrived at is that Dolphins fans cling to the one uniting symbol of pride they have left: the team’s perfect season.

Yesterday we met a man who’s taken that just a little too far. As in stomach-covering tattoo too far. Also, I like this man.

He first surfaced during the CBS broadcast as he stood amid a sea of bright orange seats in Miami while watching his beloved Dolphins get pasted by the Titans 37-3. You know, the same Titans team that lost 51-20 last week.

But then later in the evening (or maybe this is an old picture…don’t know, don’t care, because awesomeness takes priority over time sensitivity) this man who likely wasn’t born yet in 1972 had a reason to celebrate. The Falcons’ loss to the Saints guaranteed that yet another year would tick by with the ’72 Dolphins still the only team to have a perfect season.

That’s when this happened: (via the Sports Hernia)

Give me your life, bro. Give me your life.
