Chicago woman sues over backwards White Sox tattoo

25 Comments

Three months ago Eugenia Bebis went into Mystic Tattoo Art and Body Piercing in Chicago looking to get the White Sox’s logo tattooed on her outer thigh.
Yesterday she filed a lawsuit against the tattoo parlor and artist Micah St. John because … well, he put the logo on backwards.
In the suit the 20-year-old Bebis alleges that she “has had to undergo extensive laser tattoo removal procedures, will require further procedures in the future, and will also require a different, larger tattoo to cover up the laser-faded backwards tattoo at issue.”
She’s seeking damages of $50,000, which seems like an awful lot when the whole thing really boils down to someone saying, “I intended to make a big mistake, but you guys screwed up and turned it into an even bigger mistake.”
Plus, it looks great in the mirror, right?

Yankees clear 3 roster spots, could activate Stanton, Donaldson, Kahnle on Friday

LOS ANGELES — Giancarlo Stanton, Josh Donaldson and Tommy Kahnle appear set to rejoin the New York Yankees ahead of their series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

New York cleared three roster spots, saying that infielder-outfielders Oswaldo Cabrera and Franchy Cordero had been optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre along with left-hander Matt Krook after a 1-0 loss at Seattle.

Stanton, Donaldson and Kahnle all played in a rehab game for Double-A Somerset. Stanton was hitless in three at-bats in his first appearance since injuring his left hamstring on April 15.

Donaldson went 1 for 4 in his fourth rehab game as he comes back from a strained right hamstring originally sustained on April 5.

Kahnle pitched one inning, giving up one run and one hit and walking two. He has been out since spring training with right biceps tendinitis.

Boone said he wasn’t concerned about Stanton potentially returning after playing in just one rehab game. He did say that Stanton likely will be a designated hitter for a couple of weeks after rejoining the Yankees.
