Andy Reid was a good coach for many years in Philadelphia, but his final few years were difficult for fans to endure. One particular Eagles fan now has a permanent reminder of how bad things got under Reid.
On Dec. 17, three days after the Eagles lost at home 34-13 to the Cincinnati Bengals to fall to 4-10, a Twitter user who goes by @De_Bow72 sent a tweet promising to get a “Fire Andy” tattoo on his butt under one condition.
“If this gets 500 retweets I legitimately will get “Fire Andy” tattooed on my ass,” the user wrote.
You know how the rest of the story goes. In less than 24 hours, the fan’s tweet was retweeted over 500 times.
The fan actually made good on his promise, got the tattoo, and posted a picture of it on Twitter last week.
The baffling part about all this is that it was pretty much common knowledge that Reid was a dead man walking for the better part of the season. It was no secret that the Eagles weren’t going to stand for missing the playoffs again given all the money they have spent over the past few seasons, and Philly was out of the hunt from about Week 10 on. Still, the fan blamed Reid’s poor coaching for his new ink.
“Andy Reid owes me an apology. If he didn’t coach like such s— this year I’d have a tattooless ass,” the fan wrote.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time a crazy sports fan has decided to express his enthusiasm by getting a tattoo on his ass. People like this Mavericks fan and this Texas A&M fan are far too easy to come by.
