Everything Is For Sale; But The Wins Come At Quite A Cost

Someone just emailed me this latest profiteering masterstroke from The Redskins. Wondering what you guys think of it. I suppose if there's a market for this, there's a market for anything.

Here it goes, hot off the presses:

Dear Premium Members,
Who said your name can't be on your parking spot? (My editorial interjection: Who said that? Who ever even thought that? What kind of whackjob would be consumed with something this trite? Okay back to the Redskins release) Now it can!
The Washington Redskins are making a limited number of VIP Reserved Parking spaces available to select premium customers. For only $1,000, replace your existing parking pass, or add to what you currently have. Reserve your own parking spot with your name or company's name in the first few rows of the A and F parking lots for the 2007 season*. Arrive whenever you would like, your Personalized VIP Reserved Parking space will be waiting for you. Sign up today and pay will be added to your 2007 invoice.

Upgrade your 2007 Premium Season Parking Pass to the VIP Reserved Parking Pass for a total of only $1,000 per season**.
________ Yes! I would like VIP Parking
________ Quantity of VIP Parking passes I would like to add to my 2007 invoice (Please see below)
The total number of VIP and/or Premium Parking passes Redskins Premium Club members are permitted to purchase are as follows:
Number of Seats Purchased Total Parking Pass Limit (including VIP and Premium)
2-3 1
4-6 2
7-9 3
10-12 4
If quantity of VIP parking passes requested puts Premium account above the limit indicated above, the Washington Redskins reserve the right to cancel non-VIP parking passes to ensure compliance with the limits.
