We know Alabamans take their rivalries seriously, especially when it comes to Auburn and Alabama. What we’re about to show you is what happens when the passion in that rivalry goes seriously wrong.

Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage posted this picture of a poor Alabama fan who was forced to get an Auburn belly button ring. Yes, this is a hairy, mid-30s man sporting an Auburn logo pierced into his navel.

From the email posted on Outkick the Coverage:

"Two of my friends have been making Iron Bowl bets since college, so for over 10 years now. The bets began innocently such as singing the other teams fight song, buying the other guys drinks all night and have slowly progressed. They are now getting to a dangerous level. In 2006 the bet was shaved heads, that's when we found out one friend was bald because his hair never grew back. They each have tattoos of the other teams colors. Since this year's Iron Bowl was boring with not much on the line (sarcasm font), they made a bet to attempt to keep everyone's interest in the game and bet belly button rings.

Have you ever seen a dude with a belly button ring?! It's quite disturbing.

Yes, it is disturbing and priceless.

At least it’s not a tattoo and the Crimson Tide fan can take this ring out when he decides to stop being friends with this incredibly cruel Auburn fan.

But for now, it’s become the ultimate Troll Tide and the highlight of this Monday.
