Nobody really knows how much of an impact new Lion Austen Lane will make in Detroit, heck, nobody knows if he will even see any playing time here.
But I do know one thing, he has some sweet ink.
Most tattoos are the same — you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all — That’s why Lane’s tats stood out.
Lane has a picture of Big Boy on his right arm with the words “Doing Big Boy Things in a Big Boy World” above and under it.
“You guys got these restaurants around here, right?” Lane asked.
Lane admitted some people have no idea who Big Boy is or what his tattoo meant, since the historic burger chain is mostly centered in Michigan.
“In Jacksonville, it’s like who’s on your arm, is that Jimmy Neutron? They thought it was Jimmy Neutron. You know who Jimmy Neutron is, the cartoon guy? Yeah so I had to explain that wasn’t Jimmy Neutron. It’s kind of nice being in Detroit, they know who you’re talking about,” he said, laughing.
C’mon Big Boy doesn’t look anything like Jimmy Neutron!
Check out the comparison for yourself and then you decide.
