It’s hard to doubt the passion that Philadelphia sports fans hold.
Thursday provided yet another — albeit extreme and unusual — example of that fact.
An Eagles fan at Lambeau Field on Thursday night for Philadelphia’s game against the Green Bay Packers showed off his perfectly placed tattoo of the Phillie Phanatic — the mascot for the Philadelphia Phillies.
The tattoo was so well placed that the Phanatic’s nose was directly around his belly button.
Naturally, fans loved it.

Not gonna lie. I'll never look at the Phillie Phanatic the same way. https://t.co/tp0O9tO06Z— Doug Schneider (@PGDougSchneider) September 27, 2019
I’ve dated guys from Philly (not to brag) who claimed to like sports but none of them had a Phanatic belly button tattoo so I guess they weren’t true fans— Charlotte Wilder (@TheWilderThings) September 27, 2019
This is heroic. Like the Phanatic is great enough, let’s all zoom in on the others. This guy has an open invite to a dinner party at my house any time he wants. https://t.co/DhTnQc0rU1— Renee Young (@ReneeYoungWWE) September 26, 2019
