Like paper beating rock or scissors beating paper, these shows of team support beat pretty much anything you can throw on from your closet. 

Still, I will stay with my jerseys and authentic replicas, because damn these look painful. 

First up is an Alabama Crimson Tide fan who better hope his fanaticism stays with him for the rest of his life, because he basically dedicated his entire back to the team. 

Busted Coverage posted the story of Zack Smartt. You be the judge if he lived up to his namesake, whose back is now property of an epic homage. 

Per the report, this giant wall of awesome cost $1,700 and took roughly 10.5 hours to complete. Again, I will take my particular array of jerseys and caps to show team pride. 

There are others who would like to show support by pretty much mutilating any piece of flesh in honor of team pride. 

This Los Angeles fan has a pretty big crush on his city, and Jeff Gordon. 

Busted Coverage had this story as well. The man known simply as Scott S. managed this ode to LaLa Land for the price of $500. 

It's cool and all, but where is the animal busting from flames or waves like our friend Zack up there?

That's not all, though. 

Arrowhead Addict has something for the glass eye aficionados out there. 

Steve Graham is a 58-year-old from Kansas City, Kansas who is a lifelong Chiefs fan, and one who also lost his eye to a dart accident back in 1967. 

When life hands you lemons, you place a glass eye with the Chiefs' logo in your face. 

Of course, there can be only one winner on this epic day of fandom. I say the Crimson Tide super fan wins the day, but I look forward to your opinionated vote.
