We’re going to venture to guess that this Ohioan wasn’t always living in Ohio. Jason Ioppolo is a Florida Gators fan, and for his sons he painted his back yard like the Gators’ field in Gainesville.

He did a pretty good job including the SEC logo and all, even pylons at the goal line. How he was able to replicate the midfield logo is astonishing.  That is fairly detailed and accurate. I’m sure he had to make a lot of trips up to where this photo was taken from to make sure he was getting it right.

He has done this before painting his backyard like the Cincinnati Bengals field.

There are some lucky kids, they got a pretty awesome Dad. He might actually have earned that “World’s Greatest Dad” mug.
