Guy who got Kentucky 2014 National Champions tattoo gets free tickets to game


Remember that Kentucky fan who got a 2014 National Champions tattoo before the NCAA Tournament began? He’s one win away from looking like Nostradamus.

The No. 8 seed Wildcats have become one of the lowest seeds to ever reach an NCAA men’s basketball national championship game. For about two hours, that honor belonged to No. 7 seed UConn. Tyler probably wasn’t surprised to see Kentucky defy the odds, but I’m sure he never imagined his decision to get a tattoo would lead to free tickets for the biggest game of the year.

Because of the success John Calipari’s team has enjoyed, Tyler’s ink has officially became a national story.

Good for him. Tyler’s tattoo is still going to suck if the Huskies end up cutting down the nets, but most people thought he was going to become a punchline after the Round of 32. Like we reminded you before, a Seattle Seahawks fan got a Super Bowl champions tattoo before the 2013 season began. We all saw how that turned out.

    Why is there a 9 in “nati9nal”? I don’t think that it’s their 9th national title, or is it?

    Yeah, it would be 9. They’re closing in on UCLA.

    Tattoos are for morons

    2014 UConn was never temporarily the lowest national championship game seed. 1985 Villanova and 2011 Butler were both 8 seeds.
