The gas grill that Manny Ramirez now says was a friend's is no longer for sale on eBay. But that got us here at the 10 Spot thinking. Here are some eBay auctions that we'd like to see.
Seller: Kenny Rogers
Item: Container of pine tar
Minimum Bid: $15
It's The Gambler here. It breaks my heart to part with this goop, which helped turn me from one of history's worst postseason pitchers into a stud at age 41. You'd be surprised what an improved grip on a cool night can do for your confidence. Soon you'll be strutting around on the mound like Jose Lima. But now that the TV cameras caught me with the "discoloration" during the World Series, I have no use for it. I hate cameramen!
Seller: Greg Oden
Item: Fake I.D.
Minimum Bid: $20
Very convincing forgery. It has a picture of me from when I was 6. I've never been turned down with this fake license, but frankly I just don't need it anymore. You don't get proofed a lot when you look 52. Plus I'm going to be crazy-rich in a few months and nobody asks for ID at the VIP entrance. Please, no refs.
Seller: Anna Kournikova
Item(s): Tennis rackets
Minimum Bid: $25
I feel bad having all these great rackets just sitting around gathering dust while I'm out doing, well, whatever it is I do these days to stay famous. Please take them off my hands! I'll toss in a cute close-up of Enrique's mole.
Seller: Tubby Smith
Item: Sprawling estate in Lexington, Ky.
Minimum Bid: $500,000
Just got a new job and no longer need the old spread. Plenty of room for your kids and players to visit, especially if your kids are your players. Equipped with top-of-the-line security to keep you safe from rabid fans. Will throw in autographed picture of Ashley Judd.
Seller: David Beckham
Item(s): Car, hair dryer, small appliances
Minimum Bid: $1
Moving to the States -- all U.K.-designed devices must go! I'm told that the Yanks' cars have the steering wheel on the wrong side, so no use for that. And apparently they use different electrical plugs, as I noticed on the trip where I first got Posh preggers (that's why we named him Brooklyn! LOL!). I don't really care about the money, I'm just trying to get rid of this stuff. I'll toss in the contents of the fridge; the missus doesn't eat anyway.
