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

Kentucky-fan-2014-championship-tattoo

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.

Kentucky fan flashes her underwear inside bar

Kentucky became the lowest seed to ever reach the national championship game with a win over Wisconsin on Saturday night, and their fans were sure to keep it classy while celebrating. Especially this girl who showed her Wildcat pride by dropping her drawers in a bar.

As you can see, the young lady was wearing Kentucky underwear and wanted the whole establishment to know about it. I’m a UConn alum so you know where my loyalty lies heading into Monday, but this girl has me thinking Kentucky ain’t so bad.

Hey, it’s better than stripping down to your underwear inside the arena during a loss. Yeah, that’s actually been done.

Kentucky fan gets ’2014 National Champions’ tattoo before tournament

Kentucky-fan-2014-championship-tattoo

The Kentucky Wildcats entered the season as the top-ranked team in the country, but they have not lived up to the hype. Kentucky is limping toward the NCAA Tournament, having lost three of its last four games. They have not beaten a ranked opponent all season. Despite that, at least one Wildcats fan is keeping the faith in a big way.

A Kentucky fan named Tyler is so confident John Calipari and company will cut down the nets next month that he got a “2014 National Championship” tattoo representing his favorite team. Tyrone posted a photo of the ink on Twitter and was instantly bombarded by people calling him a “moron” and lots of other bad words.

You can heckle Tyler all you want, but what happened with the Seattle Seahawks fan who got a Super Bowl champions tattoo before his team won it all? Oh yeah, they destroyed the Denver Broncos en route to a title. If the Wildcats win it all, they have Tyler to thank.

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.

Kentucky fan’s prosthetic leg found at sea by shrimp boat, claimed by ex-Wildcat

The story of a Kentucky fan’s prosthetic leg that was found at sea by a shrimp boat captain has a happy ending.

On Thursday, the Northwest Florida Daily News reported about a shrimp boat captain who caught a prosthetic leg that had a Kentucky logo and motto on it. The unusual find was a first for captain Matt Willingham.

“We’ve caught (portable toilets), boat trailers and crab traps,” Willingham told the Daily News. “This was the first to catch a prosthetic leg.”

At the time of the report, Willingham was hoping for the leg’s owner to step forward. It looks like that has happened.

Walter’s Wildcat World says the leg belongs to former Wildcat football player Fred Robinson, who claimed his leg on Thursday night. Wildcat World says Robinson, a Kentucky native, lost his leg in a work-related accident in 2007, and that he recently moved to Florida. Robinson lost the leg while out boating and had given up hope of getting the $30,000 limb back until hearing about the reports on Thursday.

When he heard that authorities feared the leg belonged to a deceased person, Robinson reportedly gave a great response.

“Ain’t nobody dead. Just give me back my leg.”

Willingham and Robinson were set to meet on Friday to make the exchange. Meanwhile, we’re learning that prosthetic legs are the true sign of fan dedication.

Terrence Jones signs a pregnant woman’s stomach (Picture)

You know how Terrence Jones knows he has finally made it? Not because he is projected to go in the top 15 picks of the 2012 NBA Draft. Not because he just helped Kentucky dominate the entire NCAA field to win a championship and go down as one of the greatest college teams ever. Those things certainly help, but Jones knew he officially had arrived when a pregnant woman asked him to sign her stomach over the weekend.

Considering we have heard about Kentucky fans who offer their wives in exchange for tickets and others who shave unibrows into their chests, the photo above that Jones shared on his Instagram isn’t exactly a shocker. Still, this has to be one of the most sincere forms of flattery. Signing someone’s boob is one thing, but the pregnant belly brings it to an entirely new level. This woman’s child could someday feel a personal connection with Jones, and as you can see that’s just fine with her.

Recruit Nerlens Noel says Kentucky fan offered his wife to him

If you still don’t think Kentucky fans are crazy, there’s something wrong with you. We already knew that was the case prior to this season, but their championship run over the past month or so has completely sealed the deal. Between the insane rioting in the streets and the dude who offered his wife in exchange for Final Four tickets, we saw some truly disturbing displays of Wildcat pride throughout this year’s tournament. That passion apparently trickles over onto the recruiting trail, as well. I guess it makes sense since Kentucky’s entire starting five is probably going to declare for the NBA draft.

In his ESPN blog which highlights his path to picking a school, No. 1-ranked high school recruit Nerlens Noel told an interesting story about a Kentucky fan who did his best to convince Noel that joining the Wildcats next season is the right move. This after his return trip from New Orleans, where the All-American Championships overlapped with the Final Four:

I literally got stopped hundreds of times and took dozens and dozens of pictures. The fans were showing me so much love out there, and I definitely have to say that most of the fans were from Kentucky.

Now, of course that had a lot to do with the fact that they were playing there, but I’m always just shocked at how dedicated Kentucky fans are. One man asked me if I wanted to take his wife home with me, ha ha. I couldn’t believe it. I was like, “Nah, I’m good,” but that’s just how insane the fans were down there. Great atmosphere.

Noel is reportedly considering Syracuse and Georgetown along with Kentucky. If interacting with fans like the one he described above is his thing, Kentucky is the right choice. You won’t find people like this dude many other places across the country.
