BOSTON (AP) – A New England Patriots fan was a bit premature when he got a tattoo declaring the team champions of a game they never reached – yet he says he has no regrets.

Thirty-one-year-old Burke O’Connell says he strongly believed the Patriots would win the AFC Championship and advance to the Super Bowl.

The Massachusetts native had a friend ink the celebratory tattoo across his calf two days before the Patriots lost to the Denver Broncos.

The black-and-white tattoo depicts a Lombardi Trophy rising above the Patriots’ logo, along with the number “50” and the word “Champs.”

O’Connell, who now lives in Los Angeles, tells The Boston Globe he has no regrets. He says his chin tattoo of an ex-girlfriend’s name – now covered up – was much worse.
