Dan Woodman was laid off by Microsoft last week. But apparently the enthusiasm he got from those big-ass Safeco field rallies will be sticking around...in the form of a tattoo. Several years ago, Woodman got a tattoo of the company's "blue monster" mascot. The mascot's theme? "Change the world or go home." Apparently Woodman didn't change the world.
But he plans to keep the tattoo, a photograph of which is after the jump, along with Woodman's explanation and a never-stops-being-awesome clip of Steve Ballmer firing up the crowd at a rally.
