Photo: ‘Bama Fan Loses Bet, Gets Auburn Belly Ring
It only makes sense that the most over-the-top rivalry in college football would also consist of fans participating in the most over-the-top bets. We’re talking about you, Iron Bowl.
That’s the best way to explain how a male Crimson Tide fan came to rock an “AU” belly ring.
“Two of my friends have been making Iron Bowl bets since college,” a reader familiar with the bet (and the bettors) wrote Clay Travis. “They are now getting to a dangerous level. In 2006 the bet was shaved heads, that’s when we found out one friend was bald because his hair never grew back. They each have tattoos of the other teams colors. Since this year’s Iron Bowl was boring with not much on the line (sarcasm font), they made a bet to attempt to keep everyone’s interest in the game and bet belly button rings.
“Have you ever seen a dude with a belly button ring?! It’s quite disturbing.”
Ain’t that the truth.
