Does Rex Ryan have tattoo of his wife in a Mark Sanchez jersey?

At this point, you just have to hope that Rex Ryan is pranking the media.

How else to interpret the “Kinky Inky,” as the New York Daily News calls it, on Ryan’s biceps that threatens to make the New York Jets’ offseason rival their regular season in bizarreness?

Not long after Ryan bolted town for a “personal” trip without speaking to the media, the Jets’ coach was spotted in the Bahamas. The News dispatched a photographer and now there’s a photo of the coach sunbathing in the Bahamas. A tattoo of a woman who resembles his wife, Michelle, wearing nothing but a Mark Sanchez jersey, is clearly visible. (See it here; it’s suitable for work.) 

No wonder he kept returning to Sanchez as his starter. He really, really likes him.
