Cashing in on Taylor, Part II
Here's the closing paragraph of my item about the online sales of Sean Taylor commemorative towels yesterday:
Bear in mind, the guy is getting buried today. Which means, I guess, that mementos from his funeral won't be on eBay until tonight.
"Ha ha, Dan," I thought to myself. "Nice use of an exaggeratedly awful hypothetical to emphasize just how far some people will go to make a buck." Then I moved on.
And then someone sent me this link. So yeah, as of this writing, for a mere $102.50 on eBay you can buy yourself a program from yesterday's Sean Taylor funeral service. Here's the product description:
The rest of the people (general public) MAYBE got their hands on a couple hundred of these, so you may NEVER get another chance to get one. If you are a Redskins fan, Sean Taylor Fan, or UM fan, this may be a nice addition to your collection. This is a REAL one, not a copy. It was received by me at the service, at approximately 12:30PM on Monday 12/3/2007. Winner will receive the booklet, which has a synopsis of Sean's life, a nice collection of small pictures of Sean on another page, and a list of thank-you's on the back cover.
Incidentally, it was a VERY moving service, especially when Levar Arrington went to speak - I think he moved the entire arena with his words. Sean, rest in peace - you will be sorely missed in this world.
I suppose that God wanted the absolute best safety for His team.
I can only imagine how moved Mr. Seller must have felt when he was trying to figure out how much money he might make off his trip to the funeral.
