The notion that a class ring or perhaps an alumni sticker on the back of your car would be a sufficient indication of where your university allegiances lie was dispelled some time ago by the unveiling of random Arkansas frat bro’s arm piece. That stood for over a year as the gold standard of school pride and permanent bad decisions, until this week, when former Auburn lineman Lee Ziemba (who, like random frat bro, is also from Northwest Arkansas and thus perhaps indicating a proclivity to do such things by a certain group of people living in a certain area of the world) revealed his newest arm decor.
Sadly, Trooper Taylor’s towel narrowly missed the cut
The tattoo, as you can see, features campus scenes, a national championship ring, the Toomer’s Oaks, and the Auburn Creed (or lyrics from the band Creed, its hard to tell).
“Originally, Lee simply wanted the Auburn Creed mainly, but after we talked about it a bit, we came up with the idea of creating a more comprehensive piece that would include Auburn icons and create a whole piece that would communicate his love for the school and the city,” Farrow said. “I was really excited to be able to do something that would end in such a striking result, not to mention, to be able to work with such a successful individual who also happens to be incredibly humble and kind.”
Let’s hope this becomes a trend among former SEC football playing bulky-armed white guys…it’s the only way we are going to get to see the mural of Tiger Stadium with the likeness of Les Miles being burned at the stake by an angry mob that T-Bob Hebert probably has.
