Hey Super Fan

You go to all the Bucs home games. You own the Bucs Super Bowl DVD and go to all the fan days. You even take days off from work to drive to Orlando in the summer for training camp. But would you spend five years in jail to watch your team win the Super Bowl? Tank Carter did.

A judge increased jail time from six months to five years for the brother of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Tyrone Carter because he failed to report to prison on time for driving with a revoked license.

Tank Carter went to the Super Bowl instead and said he had no regrets.

"Even knowing what I know now, I would do it again. It was the greatest game in my life," said Carter, who watched the Steelers beat Seattle from the 50-yard line in Detroit on Feb. 5 and partied with rapper Snoop Dogg after the game.

Some kind of parallel can be made here with the original meaning of fanatic, but I'll skip that and just mention that if you're going to spend five years in jail there's no better way to go in than how Tank did. (Of course, in one of life's cruel ironies what are the chances some Seahawks fan makes Tank his bitch?)

(Big tip of the hat to The Sports Frog, and click on the picture for a better view, it's truly amazing the lengths some people will go to)
