Patriots fan gets tattoo declaring Super Bowl win

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.
