A disgruntled Philadelphia Flyers fan put his fanhood for sale on eBay. But the more ridiculous part is that people are actually bidding on it.It’s up to $41.00, and there’s still four days to go.
The seller posted the listing, “Hockey Loyalty For Sale” last Friday. The description is as follows:
Today (6/24/11), I awoke to find that Paul Holmgren had traded Jeff Carter and Mike Richards from the Philadelphia Flyers. After watching Mr. Holmgren make one bone-headed move after another for this organisation that I have loved since childhood, I have decided that I cannot take watching him destroy the team any longer. So I have decided to put my team loyalty up for sale. The highest bidder will be able to choose the team (with the exception of the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils) that I support. I will send you pictures of me throwing away/destroying my Flyers jersey/gear, and will use the money from the bid to buy a jersey/gear from whichever team the winning bidder chooses. I will also buy a subscription to NHL centre Ice so that I can watch all of my new teams games and cheer them on. If there are any more questions, please contact me and I will answer them as quickly as possible.
The Flyers have controversially blown up the core of their team this offseason. But rumours are swirling that they’re going to make a move for Tampa Bay Lightning superstar Steven Stamkos. And they’ve already added a top-flight goalie in Ilya Bryzgalov. So maybe things might work out in the end, and this guy will feel like even more of an idiot.
The seller has a feedback rating of 100%, so at least you know you’ll be getting your money’s worth.
