Is he a member here? I wonder what he is going to do with that?

Change the Texans logo to a NY logo? Or maybe he can black out the XLVI part for when the Texans actually win one.

You know how they donate the incorrect t-shirts that they make to Africa or Dominican Republic or something? :nod:

His mistake was getting "Superbowl Champions" and the Roman numeral emblazoned on himself BEFORE it happened.Oh well.

The Texans will likely win the Super Bowl next year, so the only thing he has to do is add an extra roman numeral number to what he already has? It seems like a simple enough solution.

Super Bowl XLVII in 2013 is being played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. I'm thinking it will be the Texans versus Saints. How about that matchup? Playing a team which will be playing the Super Bowl inside their own stadium. I would like that bit of extra challenge for the Texans but nothing impossible to overcome like key players being injured.

It's certainly a great possibility if both teams earn the home field advantage throughout the playoffs - 1st seed in each conference.

We'll see. It will be a lot of fun at this time next year.

Pretty sure he has to ship his arm off to some underpriveleged third-world country for the next time someone there needs an arm transplant.

Simple fix:

XLVI I

Human nature combined with misery (read: Sunday after the Baltimore loss), unfortunately, leads us too many times to take weird pleasure in the pain of others. I'm as guilty as anybody (see my "Louisiana fan" posts from earlier this week). So when people were checking with me on "Texans Super Bowl Tattoo Guy" and "how he was doing," most of those asking I'm sure wanted to hear how much Brown regrets the tattoo, how stupid he feels, and they want to know when he's scheduling the surgery to have it removed. Basically, anything short of Brown in the fetal position wailing "I'M AN IDIOT! I'M AN IDIOT!" like Scotty after he tried to kiss Dirk Diggler in Boogie Nights would be unacceptable to Schadenfruede Fan.

Those of you hoping for that outcome will be disappointed.

When I asked Brown how he was processing the game as it went along, especially the final score, he said, "Honestly, I didn't even think about the tattoo. I just processed it like a normal game. In fact, the tattoo wasn't even on my mind until right after the game when my phone started blowing up, and my friends were calling me and texting me 'HA HA!'"

Nice friends, huh? Brown laughed and said,"Hey, if we can't pick on our friends, who can we pick on?"

Okay, so we established that the tattoo had become enough of a fixture to where he didn't obsess about it game in and game out. That's probably not a surprise, as Brown has many tattoos on his body ("A walking biography," he says. "Some I like, some I regret. Like life.") and the Texans tattoo essentially became like a new member of his tattoo family.

But it does say "SUPER BOWL XLVI." I mean, it's factually WRONG. So naturally, Brown is hoping the Texans win the whole thing in the next two years so he can add a Roman numeral "I" to the end of it and correct it, right?

Wrong.

"I specifically did the shading around the Roman numeral so it would represent THIS season. I can't add an 'I' to it, and I don't want to," Brown said.

Instead of seeing the tattoo as a permanent typo, Brown prefers to see the ink as a constant reminder of a great season, and a fifteen-minute period of fame that he really wasn't aware of until about the fourteenth minute. Brown had no idea about the magnitude of Deadspin coverage ("They wrote about Rob Lowe today, I know that"), and he admits that his wife got far more angry over pieces that poked fun at Brown than he did.

I think he said he's going to leave it as is. Even if the Texans win in he next two years.

He said it's kinda like a memory. Even though the Texans didn't win

I posted the same thing about adding an I on the end as well in the other thread:

He should add, " Thanks Jacoby" to the tat.

That is a terrible tattoo. Not because it's wrong, but WTF is going on with that "shading" around the numerals?

Discount tattoo artist?
