Auctioning Off Bad Luck
Imagine auctioning off your bad karma on eBay, promising to root against the winning bidder’s favorite team in Super Bowl XLV.
Christopher Wilno of California is doing just that. He says there’s a good chance the team he’s pulling against will win the game, thanks to a long history of bad sporting luck.
If you’re a Green Bay Packers fan, he’ll pull for the Pittsburgh Steelers. If you’re a Steelers fan, he’ll root for the Packers.
He plans to donate the winning bid to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. As of Thursday, hours before the auction ends, the bidding for the Super Bowl rooting interest was at $1,000. For that price he promises to buy the opposing team’s hat, smack talk about your team, cheer “loudly and obnoxiously” during the Super Bowl and send you a video after the game of him setting the hat on fire.
I’m a big Steelers fan so please dont root for them!
