Man lives up to his promise, gets tattoo of Colon’s face to commemorate Home Run

Ask a Mets fan to describe Bartolo Colon’s home run against the Padres and they may use words like incredible, glorious and THE greatest HR of all time.

Ask a Mets fan what’s better, the team’s trip to the World Series or the two-run HR and they may pause before calling it a toss up. It was just that good.

Now, how does one properly commemorate such an unexpected feat? If your answer isn’t to get a tattoo of Colon’s face, well, then I don’t blame you. That’s an intense level of fandom. However, there’s one guy from New York who did just that. All because the idea of Colon hitting a HR this season was so far-fetched that proclaiming you’d get a tattoo if it happened seemed like a safe way to avoid getting some new ink.

Well, he was wrong. However, instead of backing out, Matt Sassi lived up to his promise and now has a fantastic story to tell.

Give the entire scenario below a read because Sassi’s dedication to the Mets is commendable. You don’t sit in a chair for multiple hours through self-inflicted pain to get someone’s face permanently tattooed on you unless you’re committed.

I should know. I’ve been there.

There are few things in the world less important than a mans word. In this case, a statement was made at the beginning of the season, and it came true. Matt Sassi said to his buddy, Anthony Triola: "If Bartolo Colon hits a home run this year, I'll get a commemorative tattoo". Before the game on Saturday I met them in McFadden's and they told me about this bet. You'd think, ok… that's not happening. Right? WRONG! Coolest part of the bet was that they were both there to witness the feat in person. Matt is a Middletown, NY native that moved to San Diego. What were the odds that Bart would be on the hill the day of our invasion? What are the odds he'd go yard? Slim to damn near impossible. Matt could have chickened out and not gotten it at all, or gotten something small that could easily have been hidden. Instead he went balls to the freakin' wall with pretty much a half sleeve. Tossed THE 7 LINE ARMY on there for good measure and added the date of Bart's now famous swing. You manned up, Matt. Bravo.
