article imageOp-Ed: NHL fan tattoos a Gary Bettman face on butt after Twitter boast

What would Bettman think? “I don't know if he'll be proud, but I do hope he sees it,” Hopkins told Yahoo. “This tattoo is probably the most people will ever laugh about Gary Bettman in a non ‘I hate Gary Bettman’ way.”
He combined the inking, it's permanent, with a funding drive for KidsSportsBC, so good came out of it. He did not say how he thought his tattoo will go over in a gym shower or an intimate setting but there is a possibility that, upon viewing it, people might think he's a bit of an.....
