Last night was not only Friday the 13th, but also a full moon. The old superstition holds that Friday the 13th is a day of bad luck, and anyone who works in an emergency room or police station will tell you that a full moon brings a lot of strange behavior. But one football fan in Michigan decided it was a great day to get a tattoo in support of his favorite team.
Detroit Lions fan David Morian decided to get a tattoo predicting which team he thinks will win next year's Super Bowl. The tattoo reads "Super Bowl Champions 2015" with the Lombardi Trophy and the Loins logo. Morian stated he got the idea when he heard about Seattle Seahawks fan Tim Connors doing the same thing this past season. If nothing else, Morian hopes that the tattoo will work as a motivator to fellow Lions fans to get behind the team and make their season as successful as the Seahawks.
Football season is still a few months away, so we will have to wait and see if Morian's prediction comes true. Should the Detroit Lions win next year's game it would not only be their first Super Bowl win, but their first appearance in the game (the other three teams are the Cleveland Browns, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Houston Texans). Morian would join the few fans in the past several years to have gotten predicative tattoos for their teams that came true; or he will join the ranks of those that have a tattoo of what might have been.
