You Can't Unsee This Eagles Fan's Incredible Phillie Phanatic Tattoo

By Gary Trock

Over the years, we've seen sports fans put their team loyalty to the ultimate test by getting logos permanently inked on their bodies ... but one fan took it to a whole new level.

During "Thursday Night Football", as the Philadelphia Eagles took on the Green Bay Packers in Wisconsin, an Eagles fan was shown on TV with the ultimate tribute piece to the City of Brotherly Love.

The man was seen with his shirt off, and over his belly button he had a large tattoo of the Phillie Phanatic, the the official mascot for the Philadelphia Phillies MLB team.

Phanatic is a large, furry, flightless bird with a very large tongue. He is regularly seen at baseball games where he shoots hot dogs into the crowd with a pneumatic air cannon.


After the photo went viral, Twitter users weighed in on the tribute ink.

"Filthadelphia," one, non-Eagles fan, quipped. Another wrote, "Philly fans are the most toxic human beings besides Bills fans."


The man was identified by the Philadelphia Inquirer as super fan Rob Dunphy, who is well known in the Philly area for his love of the city's sports teams.

His support for the Eagles definitely helped, because Carson Wentz and the team were able to walk away with a 34-27 win over the Packers.
