I'm just as tired of all the Linsanity jokes as I'm sure you are, in fact, I'm more tired of the Jeremy Lin jokes than I am of the hype that surrounds him. I don't care that ESPN spends the entire day talking about him because that's just less time that they have to talk about Tim Tebow. The point of this is to say that I'm going to hold off on all the Lin_____ jokes for the duration of this post, save one:
Anyone who buys this is batsh*t Linsane.
Jeremy Lin's boxer briefs have popped up on eBay, and are currently available for the low price of $10,000 if you buy them now. The bidding starts at $1,000.
Here's the story behind how the seller got their hands on the undergarments:
My brothers friend went to Harvard and was in the same dorm, got his boxers from the dryer on accident. Got them from him for $100 because hes stupid. Buy now and these could be worth alot in the future.
Although it's inconceivable that user tieyourshoe7's story could have ANY holes in it, the boxer briefs might. They are listed in acceptable condition which means they have "obvious or significant wear."
Upon inspection, it appears that Mr. Lin (or whoever owned these shorts) preferred Fruit of the Loom.
To all the loonies out there, you need to make a bid by the evening of February 29th (or before the dude that paid 21 grand for his rookie card swoops in). Currently there are 0 bids, a fact that kind of restores my faith in humanity.[Via Sweater Punch]
