Reds fan bares all in fulfilling awkward 2021 World Series bet
By Tyler Reed
The Cincinnati Reds have long been known as one of the most loyal fan bases in all Major League Baseball. One of the small market underdogs that everyone has a soft place in their heart for. One fan of the Redlegs has decided to take his fandom to the next level.
This particular fan is getting a tattoo. That’s not all too uncommon, right? The tattoo states that this year’s Reds team will be World Champions. Okay, I can get behind a fan having faith in his team. However, the tattoo is not on his arm or his lower back. It’s a little bit further south.
Reds fan, Big Al, got an awkward tattoo on his backside.
A Reds fan, known as Big Al on his Twitter profile, made a post in 2019 saying that if his tweet got 1,000 likes, he would get “Reds 2021 World Series” on his backside. Luckily the Twitter world banded together for this joyous occasion and the day finally came that Big Al, whose Twitter handle is @cincysprtszone, has kept his word and shared a new work of art that will stand the test of time.
To spare your eyesight while scrolling through Twitter, check out this link if you would like to take a look at the tattoo. If your’re not interested I have to say I don’t really blame you. The Cincinnati fanbase never disappoints to prove their loyalty, and this one ranks up there as one of the all-time strangest fan moments.
Salute to you, Big Al. If the Reds make the World Series this season, can the Cincinnati faithful push to get this guy tickets to the Fall Classic? It would be a small price to help out a man who is this passionate about his team.
We need more Big Al’s in Reds Country. While I may not sign up for a tattoo on my butt, I’m in full support of others who take the dive and prove how much they love their Redlegs.
