Magnificent, insane man has every MLB mascot tattooed on his body (video)

MLB Fan Cave recently announced its 50 contest finalists, and by the looks of the audition videos we have some really mentally ill wonderful applicants. Take Benjamin Christensen, for instance. Not only is the 28-year-old University of Oregon student’s room packed with baseball memorabilia, but he has the mascot of every MLB team tattooed on his torso.

“I wanted to get every major league team on my body somehow, and the best way possible was ribs to hips on each side, so American League on the right side, and National League on the other,” he said.

Each tattoo has a story. “Its all historical related stories and such that I crammed a lot of research into it, but if I’m gonna put it on my body, might as well have some fun with it.”

Voting is now open, and an as-yet-number of winning video entries will earn spots in the MLB Fan Cave, which is a studio in Manhattan where they will watch every single MLB game on TV and blog about it. This year will be a reality show format, in which Fan Cave members are voted off incrementally, Survivor style.
