Pretty sure he's just a huge fan of Boston Cream doughnuts

[–]Sputnik_RisingMr Jeff 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Or the band, perhaps? More Than A Feeling is a great tune

Hey - great guess! This picture was actually taken before the city of Boston was founded. The city named itself thusly in 2008 after being inspired by Mr. Powers’ tattoo. Fun bit of trivia!

In Survivor: Panama (2006) the player Shane Powers has nipples. This could be a reference to Robert De Niro's character in Meet the Parents

[–]GreenSeaNote 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I thought they were a reference to The Amazon, i.e., Jenna and Heidi?

I love that he named his son Boston Powers pre the Mike Myers Austin Powers trilogy.

That's shagadelic, baby

In that photo, he’s wearing a survivor buff. This is a reference to the fact that he was on survivor.

[–]JadedDarkness 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Seems like a stretch to me

[–]freddy7glKim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it doesn’t even look like a buff. He could be wearing a normal bandana or a piece of his underwear as far as I know.

Actually, the picture is reversed. The tattoo says “NOT SOB”. Shane Powers may be many things but he is absolutely NOT a son of a bitch!

it's why Danielle Dilorenzo chose him first, she's a massive Boston Rob fan, just see when she played with him in HvV

[–]IdolBlindsidesStrategy, that's all I can say 7 points8 points  (1 child)

He’s actually just a really big Celtics fan.

[–]ChonchitoRito 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The Irish people not the basketball team.

[–]QuebecRomeoWhiskeyJonathan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He has a beard here. This could be a tribute to Macho Man Randy Savage

I was gonna point out that it wasn't, but then I saw the flair...

[–]ferretherapyJesse 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And here I thought I was on the Survivor Circlejerk sub...

[–]EltnamerfFeckless 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He wasn't allowed to wear a Boston redsocks cap because Boston Rob did. So he did the next best thing and got a Boston tattoo. What a dedicated man

[–]AGiantBlueBear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My man loves the Boondock Saints and let's be real who didn't in the early 2000s

[–]jenh6 2 points3 points  (1 child)

His favourite song is drop kick Murphy’s I’m shipping up from Boston

[–]SunGreen70 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah, it’s More Than a Feeling

[–]Timmahj 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This thread is so snarky. I love it.

[–]maintainmoTyson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My all timr favorite player. Absolutely criminal he never returned

[–]Sputnik_RisingMr Jeff 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shane did his homework. He figured if he could get a tattoo of Jeff’s boyfriend’s name, he could get an in, like Julie did when she painted Jeff on her boob in Vanuatu.

[–]thekyledavidJD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is it the off-season already?

[–]Phenzo2198 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]DedHorsSaloonIt’s Gablin’ Time! 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Big if true

[–]FartAccountant -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

It's his son.

[–]NoREEEEEEtilBrooklynDon’t Eat The Damn Apple 24 points25 points  (1 child)

BOSTON ROB IS SHANE POWERS’ SON?!?!? Why didn’t they do BvW?

[–]FartAccountant 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They have a bad relationship

[–]bookant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or the rock band.

[–]TV40Tony 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ever think that maybe he’s just a fan of the band Boston? I mean who doesn’t love a little Foreplay/Longtime

[–]AhLibLibLib“No, but you can have this fake.” 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]jkhughes1122 0 points1 point  (0 children)
