Royals fan shows his dedication with neck tattoo

So you think you're a loyal Royals fan? Would you be willing to get "KC" inked on your neck to prove it? Didn't think so.

Charlie Benn of Lee's Summit not only has KC tattooed on his neck, he has the other side inked as well with ... wait for it ... St. Louis.

"My family is from here, but I was raised in St. Louis, raised a Cardinal," said Benn. But since he's living on this side of the state now, he's a Royals fan and decided to give both of his teams some love.

"It's a Show-Me State tribute," said Benn, who has had the tattoos for about 10 years.

Benn and his girlfriend, Crystal Jones, were out at the K early on Monday for their first Royals home opener. He didn't seem too concerned about covering up the St. Louis side of his neck. Seriously, would you tangle with this guy?
