Baseball fan’s tattoos tell story of America’s pastime

Lydia oh Lydia, that Baseball Encyclopidia

All across his lower spine is an image of Yankee Stadium. Framing it all together is the only vibrant color in the scene—big red stitches that run from his elbows to his armpits and down the sides of his torso.

“Believe it or not, I hate the Yankees,” McWain quipped. “But the original Yankee Stadium is so much a part of the history of baseball, I had to include it.”

Though his wife, Marcy, loves the art work, there are times she finds it a bit disturbing, McWain said.

“Sometimes when we’re in bed I roll over on my side with my back to her with Ty Cobb’s portrait staring right at her, and I think it kind of creeps her out,” McWain said. “That’s how realistic Jesse made those portraits.”

I guess the Ted Williams part is life-sized, then

A girl walks into a tattoo shop and asks for a tattoo of Elvis on the inside of her left thigh. The artist said, “Elvis is my specialty, c-mon in and have a seat!”

As he finishes, she takes a look and says, “THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE ELVIS!”

He replies, “That is the best Elvis I have ever done.”

She disagrees. So he offers to do a mirror image on the other leg — so he gives her one on the inside of the other leg, perfect mirror image.
She says, “That looks better, but it don’t look like Elvis either.”

So he tells her to go out on the street, and if she finds ONE person that does not think the tattoos look like Elvis, then it’s on the house. Well…the first person she finds is an old wino. She pulls up her skirt and says, “Who do you think this is?”

He squints and stammers, “I don’t know who the twins are, but the one in the middle looks just like Willie Nelson.”

When I was in grad school at Alabama, there was an undergrad who at football games walked around without a shirt because he had Coach Bryant on his back. It was quite distributing,

If you click on the link, you can get better angle on that ink. (Hey, I'm a poet and don't realize it.) Ty Cobb is quite amusingly prominent...I can see why she skeeves.

Then there's no way I'm clicking on that link

What's wrong with distribution, which seems a crucial link in the full-back tattoo of coaching legends supply chain?
