Bid High and Bid Often

According to the Seattle Times the Seahawks have some business savvy fans. Someone bought a hot dog during the Seahawks/Panthers game last weekend and is saving it...for the lucky winner of their ebay auction.

The dog also has its own MySpace account for added publicity. It's been vacuum sealed and placed in a freezer for "freshness". mmmmmmm In the words of Homer Simpson, "This better be the best tasting [hot dog] ever." Apparently it also comes with a "Super Bowl win money-back guarantee" and a free t-shirt, so the winning bidder will get more than just a $4 hot dog for their 10 grand. At least they have that going for them, which is nice.

People will buy (or bid on) anything. This is getting somewhat ridiculous. Personally, I don't blame the guy selling it, I think it's ridiculous that someone with a positive Ebay rating has actually bid that much on it. If he actually collects he's the smartest "get rich quick" schemer in the state of Washington. He's taken the appropriate actions to insuring he gets paid, reviewing bidder before allowing them to post. I hope he gets his money and I hope the person who buys the dog puts a lot of ketchup on it.

Until Next Time...
