I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to lose one of your eyes, but it has to suck. I probably couldn’t even type a complete sentence if I closed one eye, so it’s safe to say everyday life would be nothing short of a grind. That’s why I respect people like Nicholas Weber, who lost his left eye in an accident last year according to Kentucky Sports Radio.

Instead of feeling sorry for himself, Weber decided to use getting a glass eye as an opportunity to represent his favorite team. Shockingly, he’s not the first fan we’ve seen with their team’s logo on their eyeball. A Chiefs fan had the same idea, although he says he only wears it to games on Sundays. If Weber wears his all the time, he might have the slight edge in dedication.

Steve Graham is a 58-year-old Chiefs fan who lost his eye in a dart accident when he was 13 years old. If that sounds like an awful way to lose an eye, I’m sure it is. Not that there could ever be a good way to lose an eye, but I can think of a few that would be less traumatizing than ones that involve a dart. According to the Chiefs fan blog Arrowhead Addict, Graham has been a die-hard fan ever since he watched the Chiefs win the Super Bowl in 1969 — two years after his accident.

The glass you eye you see him sporting above is simply Graham’s game day attire. He says his doctor recommended the design so he can make it part of his Sunday best, but that he has two other artificial eyes that match his left eye as to not freak people out. If it were me, I’d wear it all the time. You think getting a tribute tattoo like this one or this one makes you a huge fan? Trying wearing your team’s favorite logo in your eye.
