Well, good for him. And no, I don’t believe keeping Devin Thomas as a special teams gunner would have won the Redskins any additional games this season. It’s just a striking image.
Speaking of striking images, the Wall Street Journal recently posted a detailed look at Thomas’s many tattoos, and also interviewed Thomas about his body art.
That led to this passage:
The tattooing became a way to “vent,” he said, in his offseasons a few years ago. Originally drafted by the Redskins, he’s been frank about that organization’s dysfunction and joked, “Obviously, being in D.C., it was very stressful. After the season, I was ready to get to a needle.” He’s now, with this Giants team, happier than he’s ever been, he said, and so “I don’t have to express my anger so much.” The tattooing has slowed and is more subtle, but that’s not a precursor to the complete end of his inking.
Besides, he has a plan for how to commemorate a Super Bowl win. “I can’t tell you what I’m going to do, but I have to do something,” he said. “This is a lifetime dream and I want to mark it.”
I suggest a tattooed image of himself holding the Lombardi Trophy, except adding to the image a tattooed image of himself holding the Lombardi Trophy.
