A Seattle Sounders fan gets a Clint Dempsey tattoo. This is absolutely tragic. pic.twitter.com/R1nXUotXEj— Not Match of the Day (@NOT_MOTD) August 12, 2013
We've all heard of "Deuce Face." Welcome "Deuce Neck."
It's the Clint Dempsey version of Mr. Potato Head with his head sitting right on top of his soccer boots. Except, where are the rubber arms, mustache and tongue inserts, and what happens if that guy headbangs too violently at a metal show? Does Deuce's whole face fall off?
It may very well be a sign that we're entering a new phase of MLS fandom: Why go for a simple club crest as a tattoo when you can memorialize your favorite superstar? This will be forever remembered as one of the firsts.
For that guy's sake, let's hope Dempsey retires a Sounder.
We know this isn't the first venture into someone tattooing their favorite MLS team or player on their body, so link us to the ink of your own or someone you know who forever carry a club crest or player image on their body.
