Best Christmas gift ever.
The Memphis Grizzlies are auctioning off the jersey Darko Milicic ripped in half
the other night! Oh yes they most certainly are
MEMPHIS, December 9, 2008 — When the Memphis Grizzlies said that they were going to provide fans with the opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind team memorabilia as part of their Online Auction Series, they weren’t kidding. On the auction block starting December 11 at 9 a.m. is the game worn jersey that Darko Milicic ripped in last night’s 109-97 win over the Houston Rockets.
Darko Milicic did his best Incredible Hulk impersonation during the third quarter of the Grizzlies second consecutive home victory last night. The remnants of the jersey, which include a rip down the center that is more than a foot and a half long, will include a personalized autograph from Milicic addressed to the highest bidder.
All proceeds from the online auction benefit the Memphis Grizzlies House at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Grizzlies House has the capacity to serve up to 100 families each night and provides a free, safe and comfortable alternative to staying in a hotel.
I want it, I want it, I want it! (Even if, as J.E. Skeets noted
, Darko was more "Hulk Hogan" than "Incredible Hulk.") Find out how you can get this for me here
, or use conventional methods: e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
or call (901) 205-1254. I promise if you get it for me, I'll never wear anything else.
