It’s that time of the year again, folks.
Every year, you come across stories of extremely loyal and optimistic sports fan getting tattoos of their team logos with a message about how they’ll win the league championship in the coming season.
Well, one ultra-confident and humble Detroit Lions fan felt confident enough to treat themselves to a tattoo of his team winning the Super Bowl. The tattoo reads “Super Bowl Champs 2024”, with the Lions logo and the Lombardi Trophy together:
The Lions are one of four teams to have never played in the Super Bowl, along with the Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars. But there’s a first time for everything, and just maybe this is the year it all comes together for a long-suffering Lions franchise.
The NFC North club also hasn’t won a playoff game since the 1991 season, though they came awfully close to upsetting the Dallas Cowboys in the 2014 Divisional Round.
Detroit is coming off their first winning season (9-8) since 2017, having only missed out on the postseason to the Seattle Seahawks because of a tiebreaker. With Aaron Rodgers no longer residing in the NFC North, the division is wide open and there for the taking.
The Lions will open their 2023 season against none other than the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in the annual NFL Kickoff Game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sept. 7.
