Tampa Bay Rays fans try to spell ‘Go Rays’ in body paint, but are missing a few letters (photo)

When it comes to attending a sporting event, I usually do so in full wardrobe. Nothing against those who show up to the game shirtless, covered in body paint as I fully endorse your fandom, but you just look out of place when you’re left by your buddies, right?

I mean – take these guys for example.

Here they are, 3,000 plus miles across the country in Southern California, supporting their Tampa Bay Rays as they visit the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Maybe they’re locals who just all happen to like the Rays. Or maybe they’re die hard fans who’ve decided to support their squad on a vacation. Either way, they’re at the game to root on their favorite team and decided to display their hardcore fan status by spelling out ‘Go Rays’ on their back in body paint.

Only problem?

Seems as if a few of the letters made a concession stand run or needed a bathroom break.

But the renaming guys sure seem to be enjoying themselves.

Maybe they should have employed that shirtless dude behind them as a temporary replacement.
