Football Player's Tattoo: At Least It's Not a Teddy Bear ... or Maybe Not

Posted By on Thu, Dec 17, 2009 at 8:05 AM

Anyone else notice that corporate logo inked onto a player's arm this week during Monday Night Football?


Turns out it belongs to Justin Smith the Missouri boy (and Mizzou grad) now a defensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers. And, yep, it's the Anheuser-Busch logo.

Smith has had the tat since at least 2007 when one blogger opined that he looks like a "big country hillbilly who would love to stab you with beer bottle."

We're not sure what to think of Smith's tattoo. We appreciate his pride for his home state's industries. But wouldn't a tattoo of another St. Louis-based business -- Build a Bear -- have made a bigger statement?

Hat tip to Uni Watch for this lil' nugget.
