Yes, that is a man with an Auburn bellybutton piercing. No, it’s not a disturbing, hairy War Eagle fan. It’s actually a disturbing, hairy Alabama fan who lost a bet on the Iron Bowl.
Clay Travis received the spectacularly awful picture, and below is the bet’s backstory.
Two of my friends have been making Iron Bowl bets since college, so for over 10 years now. The bets began innocently such as singing the other teams fight song, buying the other guys drinks all night and have slowly progressed. 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.
Let’s go even bigger next year, boys. Loser gets a Prince Albert. Who’s in?
