And we thought some of our fans were bandwagon... The winning bidder at this auction on ebay wins her support as a fan for their team...
She has 3 bids so far. Here's the auction description:
Where do I start?? I am 22 years old and have always been a diehard Carolina Tar Heels fan. I have been with them through the good times and the bad. But they are getting to be more than I can handle. Roy Williams is not treating the fans how they should be treated. I am sick of him. So I am looking for a new team to pull for. You are bidding on my loyalty to your team. I will be buying new shirts and items to support my new team with the money from the winning bid. You are not buying me but my support for your team. The starting bid is $250.00, good luck and Happy Bidding!!
Sigh, yeah that's real. Great precedent set by the NCAA.
A week ago there was a post about a 1997 National Championship Rose Bowl RIng for sale for $5999. The auction ended on July 12. I don't know if the ring sold.
Today Ebay has another (?) ring from the same team. This one lists the player as Scott Loeffler and is available for under $1600 as of now. Sounds like a bargain. I guess he doesn't expect to ever come back as a coach. I'd think it would help with recruiting.
