LOOK: Lions fan gets 'Super Bowl 2015 Champs' tattoo

More NFL offseason: League minicamp dates | Latest news, notes

We applaud this Lions fan for his unwavering optimism, though the permanent reminder of anything but a Super Bowl title could become a tad annoying.

Of course, maybe this is all a big hoax.

Assuming this is legit, all is not lost should the Lions somehow not win the Super Bowl. Just replace "2015" with "1957," the last time the team won a championship. (Pay no attention to the remaining image of the Lombardi Trophy, or the fact that the Super Bowl didn't begin until 1967. We didn't have a lot to work with.)
