Rex Ryan was spotted vacationing in the Bahamas showing off his new slimmed-down beach body just days after his New York Jets finished their season with a dismal 6-10 record.
It wasn't the only thing the Jets head coach revealed in his blue and white swim trunks after fellow poolside sunbathers saw what might be a clue as to why Ryan stuck with Mark Sanchez through thick and thin during the quarterback's horrible 2012 season — a kinky tattoo.
On the coach's right arm were two tattoos — one featuring a shamrock and the names of his wife Michelle and their two children. Below that, there is another showing what looks like a sexy rendering of Michelle wearing nothing but a Sanchez jersey and eyeing the viewer with bedroom eyes, as described by the New York Daily News.
Ryan, who has been on the lam since the Jets season ending loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, unveiled the bizarre tattoo on his right bicep while lounging poolside at the exclusive Cove Atlantis resort, listening to music and reading "American Sniper," by Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.
Ryan cursed out a Daily News reporter who approached the relaxing coach.
"Oh s---," Ryan said, while waving off the newshound and storming off with his wife.
Ryan proudly displayed the tribal art tattoo he got on his right calf before the 2011 season but it's anyone's guess when he got Sanchez's jersey number inked on his arm. Chances are pretty good it was before the five turnover game against the Titans.
While it's never been a good idea to permanently ink your current fling's name anywhere on your body, it is even more awkward when it's one of your players stuck in a quarterback controversy.
I hope Ryan is prepared for a little painful off-season laser removal of the bromance ink. Things could have been worse though — it could have been Tim Tebow's No. 15 instead of Sanchez's single-digit No. 6.
Stick with "MOM" the next time, Rex.
