According to ESPN's Thomas Neumann, Contreras had to get the tattoo because he himself had serious doubts about Tebow. He's a Broncos fan, but he wasn't sold that Tebow could get the Broncos to the promise land.
Here were the terms of the wager,
"If Tebow won five or more games this season, Contreras would get a "Tebow Time" tattoo; if Tebow won fewer than five, (Josh) Lucero would get a tattoo disparaging Tebow."
Contreras now has a permanent reminder that writing off the powers of Tebow can have detrimental results.
It's great to see that he didn't just get a standard Tebow tattoo. He's going to have a ridiculous tattoo on his body for the rest of his life and Contreras says, "Well, if I'm going to get something I'm going to regret, I might as well make it something funny."
This is a much better story than some salivating, No. 15-wearing Tebow fanatic inking his body with a Tebow tattoo.
There is a solid chance he's not going to be in Denver soon, which made this tattoo both risky and ridiculous.
Contreras paid his dues and got a tattoo on his upper thigh that you just can't help but laugh at.
Let this be a lesson for all of us. Never doubt Tim Tebow.
