Remember: fan is short for fanatic.
And idiot is short for….well, it isn’t short for anything, but you get the point. At what stage in one’s life do they separate from collecting sports memorabilia, particularly when it isn’t actually sports memorabilia?
I’m not sure about you, but someone’s leftover BBQ sauce does nothing for me.
From the New York Daily News…
It’s no bull — a jug of expired barbeque sauce meant to top the a 20 year-old McDonald’s McJordan Burger has sold for $9,995 on eBay.
The McJordan sandwich wasn’t just special because it was sold only in a few midwest markets in the early 1990’s, said the seller, Mort Bank. It was also the first sandwich to be named after a person: NBA superstar and Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan.
Bank, a former McDonald’s franchise owner and operator from Bismarck, N.D., said that some one bought the McJordan sauce at the ‘Buy it Now’ price.
The sandwich had the aforementioned barbecue sauce, with pickles , cheese and bacon, all of Jordan’s “favorite ingredients.”
“It was tasty,” Bank confirmed. “Bacon makes everything taste better.”
Bank believed that if the sauce, which has an expiration date of 1992 clearly stamped on the bottle, had gone to auction, the price would have skyrocketed.
“There was a lot of interest,” he said. “Despite Michael Jordan’s popularity, the sandwich wasn’t a national promotion.”
