Some fans just push it too much. While some may celebrate the first Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles by getting drunk and partying all night, Teddy Munz tattooed an image of quarterback Nick Foles hoisting the trophy on his left calf.
The 38-year-old schoolteacher from New Jersey got the ink from his favorite tattoo parlor in Clementon, New Jersey. Munz has more than 30 tattoos on his body so it’s hard to say that it was impulsive.
Munz told ESPN that this is his first sports tattoo because he always thought of them as cheesy. “But this one is cool,” the long-time Eagles fans said. ”It’s the guy who started the season as the backup quarterback.”
Foles started as backup to Carson Wentz early in the season until the quarterback was shut down due to a nagging injury.
A tattoo of Foles holding the Vince Lombardi trophy is also appropriate considering that the Eagles were the only team before that defeated Lombardi and the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs in the 1960 national championship.
The Eagles already won three national championships in 1948, 1949 and 1960 but this was the first time they won a Super Bowl.
Munz said it took the artist four hours to finish the detailed image. The school teacher was very satisfied by the results.
Meanwhile, Eagles fans are still crossed with TV color commentator Cris Collinsworth for calling for a review of the two touchdowns. And when the calls were upheld, he expressed disbelief on the officials’ ruling.
In fact, a Change.org petition was uploaded to demand that Collinsworth won’t ever call a Philly game ever again. The petition called him the “most biased and horrible commentator ever” as Collinsworth has been talking about the Patriots the whole time. The petition already gathered more than 62,000 signatures as of press time.
