PHOTO: Your Astros 'fan tattoo' of the day

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

As Socrates once wrote, "The truest rooter is he who hath been ruptured by the tattooist's plume." (Note: Actually, Socrates did not write anything, least of all the preceding.) And as the following gentleman proves, there's no better way to satisfy Socrates's edict than by getting your favorite team's name etched in large-point font upon one's soup-bone.

Here, see for yourself:

True confession: I find something oddly admirable about this.

The point, though, is that one distant day when the Astros hoist the World Series trophy, all those who came after should bow down before this gentleman, who chose the afterglow of a 111-loss season in which to maim his corporeal self in honor of the hometown nine.

If every team is at heart a tribe, then this, Astros rooters, is your village elder. Please remit payment in the currency of respect.
