This fan emblazoned his prosthetic eye with the Seattle Seahawks logo

Seattle Seahawks fan Bill VandenBush likes to keep his eye on his team. Or rather, his team on his eye.

The superfan, who lost his eye in Vietnam War in the ’60s, recently upgraded his prosthetic eye by emblazoning it with the Seahawks logo where the pupil would otherwise be. It’s simultaneously admirable and terrifying.

But mostly admirable. The eye was a gift to VandenBush from his wife for their 10th wedding anniversary, KIRO-TV reports.

“Every game I’ll have it in, or any gathering with Seahawks’ fans present,” VandenBush told KIRO.
