Former Lions running back Barry Sanders put himself on Ebay this week, auctioning off the “pleasure of his company” at Super Bowl parties to the highest bidder.
Sanders does have a good cause. All proceeds go to the V Foundation for Cancer Research.
Bidding ends at 1 p.m. Thursday. As of Wednesday evening, the price had topped $9,000. Along with Sanders’ presence come complimentary food and beverages.
There’s just one catch: Sanders has never struck us as having much personality. So unless you have an itch to donate or can get Sanders out in the backyard at halftime to show what he has left of his moves, $10,000 seems like a whole heck of a lot to pay. The Hall of Fame running back probably isn’t going to be the life of the party.
