There’s probably somewhere in the neighborhood of one million different jokes that I can make here about A-Rod’s balls, but no, I am going above the low brow humor that I normally use and just giving it to you straight. You can soon purchase Alex Rodriguez’s 500th home run ball which he hit in old Yankee Stadium on Aug. 4, 2007.
So, you too can be a part of history and pay a ton of money for a ball, hit by a guy, who admitted he once used performance enhancing drugs to help hit balls. Awesome. Ask Todd McFarlane how buying home run balls has worked for him lately? Yea, he’s the wisenheimer who bought Mark McGwire’s 70th home run ball for 3 million dollars. BRILLIANT!
You can be the proud owner of the 40 feet tall, 31 ton, fire-breathing, mechanical dinosaur known as Robosaurus! All you have to do is be the winning bidder at the 2008, 37th annual Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale, Arizona taking place January 12-20th next year.
Robosaurus is operated by a human pilot strapped inside the monster’s cranium. The operator also controls the 20-foot flames that erupt from his nostrils and the foot-long stainless steel teeth that rip into and twist metal with 20,000 pounds of crushing force.
While I have never been to a monster truck rally, I do feel like this is something that anyone would love to own…if they had enough space to store it somewhere of course. Imagine rolling up to a club in this beast? How can you not get into the swankiest spot in town with this motherfucker shooting 20 foot flames out of its mouth, picking up and crushing with 20,000 lbs of force all those riced out civics cruising the street near the joint. All the ladies be all up in Chimp’s piece fo’ sho’. While I would love to see someone like Shaq purchase this and subsequently roll up to the ESPYs or some red carpet with this piece of redneck history, Robosaurus must be mine…
If you need to see this hotness in action, watch below:
The Dallas Cowboys organization participated in a domain name auction for the site “Cowboys.com”. The auction ended with the organization bidding $275,000 and they won the site. The only problem is, they thought they were bidding $275 for the name and now they don’t want it. The head of the auction site that had the name had this to say in a forum:
when I spoke to their attorney…he was dead serious, had no idea that it was $275K and was shocked when he received the purchase agreement ( he thought he bought it for $275.00 – thats right two hundred and seventy five dollars!). I almost asked him what he was smoking.
after falling out of my chair….not ever experiencing anything like this one, we are going to let this dog stay sleeping for a while. someone should pick this name up and it will ultimately cost the cowboys millions when they finish that $800M stadium they are building. I told the attorney that my guess was that they probably sell $275K in popcorn and beer in one game and that they were foolish not to look at their brand in a different way.
We find a way to turn dirt into diamonds anyway and this will be well past us.
Pretty dumb huh? HOW ‘BOUT THEM COWBOYS?!?!!!
Seriously, the domain name has got to be worth that much, if not more, why wouldn’t they want to lock that bad boy up? They’re paying more for Roy Williams and I’m sure he’s made less hits than that site would’ve.
