For whatever reason, college football fans love making crazy bets before rivalry games. We’re not talking about cash wagers. A lot of this stuff — like getting a tattoo on your backside — is worse than losing money. But nothing could be worse than a man with a bellybutton ring.
A reader recently emailed a disturbing photo to Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage and explained the story behind the Auburn bellybutton ring dangling off the hairy stomach.
“Two of my friends have been making Iron Bowl bets since college, so for over 10 years now. The bets began innocently such as singing the other teams fight song, buying the other guys drinks all night and have slowly progressed. They are now getting to a dangerous level. … Since this year’s Iron Bowl was boring with not much on the line (sarcasm font), they made a bet to attempt to keep everyone’s interest in the game and bet belly button rings.”
Wasn’t the way the Iron Bowl ended punishment enough? I don’t know if this dude has to wear the ring for life or if he can let that thing close up after a certain amount of time, but it’s not going to help him with the ladies. I’m starting to think tattoos to pay off debts may be the way to go.
