Soccer fan honours Twitter promise to get Kenny Miller tattoo

Prior to the match between bitter rivals England and Scotland on August 14, 2013 at the famous Wembley Stadium, 20-year-old Scotland fan Ryan Pearson soberly tweeted out that he would get a tattoo on his bottom reading “Kenny Miller, Goal Machine” if the Whitecaps striker managed to score against the Three Lions.


In the 49th minute, Miller brilliantly turned and fired a shot past the outstretched arms of English keeper Joe Hart and into the back of the net.

“When Kenny scored, I did celebrate at first, but then my mates remembered what I had promised – and they weren’t going to let me renege,” said Pearson.

“I’m glad I did it though. I wasn’t even drunk when I sent out the tweet, so I don’t even have that as an excuse.”

Now let this be a lesson to all, always think before tweeting.

Here’s what Miller and his Whitecaps teammates had to say:
