After Sunderland beat local rival Newcastle for the first time in thirteen years inside St. James Park April 14 — keeping their Premier League hopes alive — the surprising visiting team's victory set off a wild celebration and riots that had to be cooled down by the coppers.
Against all odds, the Black Cats managed the 3-0 win, led by their new controversial, self-proclaimed fascist manager Paolo Di Canio.
It was a crucial victory that will live long in the memory of Sunderland fans, particularly on the left shoulder of one Black Cat fan who has had a commemorative tattoo of the iconic suit-ruining knee-slide celebration by the Italian coach inked there.
The odd choice of an image is even more bizarre when you look closely at the crease permanently inked in the coach's pants — and it shows a little more than the fan probably hoped for. Make that twice as much.
Politics aside, it appears that Di Canio is excited to swing to both sides.
