Football fans always like to proclaim they’re the team’s biggest fan, but are you really? How far would you go to get some free tickets to a playoff game or the Super Bowl?

Ladies, would you shave your head and get a giant tattoo on the side of your head?

Well, that’s exactly what McKenzie Jane Brown, a Seahawks fan, did to try to win tickets to last week’s NFC title game against the 49ers. A local radio station was giving away two tickets to a fan who had the best Seahawks-themed photo. Surely getting a giant “12th man” tattoo would win, right?

Unfortunately, Brown finished in second place — to a guy in a Batman costume. That’s right, a Batman costume.

“I came in second, but nothing else changed,” she told the Tri-City Herald. “I may have a little bit of an itchy head, but I’m still loud and proud.”

But her fight for tickets isn’t over.

She’s reached out to Ellen DeGeneres, pitching the idea of shaving the other side of her head and getting an “Ellen” tattoo if the talk show host can hook her up with tickets to Sunday’s Super Bowl .
