Nick Swisher Continues to Impress

So this is Nick Swisher decked out in 70s gear with what I hope is really his own car. Would anything about this guy surprise you? I like the Pink Floyd "Animals" shirt. The Barbados hat, not so much.

Now everyone knows Nick Swisher has something like 35 tattoos of his dead grandparents scattered over his body but just last night Nick Swisher outdid himself.  Swisher visited his very own tattoo guy- much like we have barbers and drug dealers, Nick has a specific tattoo guy- and got the final verse of the Footprints poem tattooed on the inside of his upper left arm. The verse is shown below for the heathens that haven't memorized this through years of draconian 12 step programs, interventions and visits to elderly relatives' homes.

I can't say I am at all surprised by this. I can picture Swisher walking up to people in the Yankees clubhouse, naked of course, showing them the tattoo and saying "Fuck yeah" when they see it.  That doesn't bother me. What does bother me is that Swisher took Phil Hughes along with him. Hughes got the following tattooed on the inside of his upper left arm.

Yes, Phil Hughes got Philipians 4:13 tattooed on his arm. No, this isn't the tattoo. This is some other retard's tattoo. It's sort of sad that more than one person has thought of this.
