When you are an NFL long snapper, you either have to horribly botch a snap or do something completely ridiculous to make the news. Let me introduce you to Washington Redskins long snapper Nick Sundberg, the proud owner of this full back Greek Mythology tattoo. He tweeted out the above picture and the following message last Thursday:
I know what you are thinking right now – how cool is that? Truthfully, it really is not that cool. According to Nick the tattoo is not done yet, so maybe it will get better…but I highly doubt it. Keep on snapping Nick and leave the tough guy act to the real football players!

QB Robert Griffin (Washington)
Cam Newton’s rookie season has fantasy players very excited about Robert Griffin and rightfully so. Griffin won’t rush for the 14 touchdowns Newton rushed for because, well no one does that.
