Every so often I like to check out Ebay for their bizarre hockey lots. How could someone pass up this lovely Washington Capitals tapestry entitled “The Champions!”? The original listing no longer has the photo attached but I made sure to save it for posterity. Tonight I wanted to look at what fans up for sale in response to the Roberto Luongo rumors and the recent loss to the very impressive LA Kings.
On this little trip through the simple search of “Vancouver Canucks Cup” I turned up some interesting lots, whether or not they are real, that’s up for you to decide.
It’s been a long hard season. You’re in a panic because your star center Ryan Kesler is spending a second summer in a row recuperating from a major surgery. Being the superstitious fan you are, you want to push Kesler’s healing time along. Make sure he’s ready for an October start with explosive numbers. What can you do? How about a little voodoo? But you’re going to need something of Kesler’s, right? Well how about a pair of game worn pants from last year’s Stanley Cup Finals?
That’s right with a starting bid of $299.99, you can own Kesler’s hockey pants and work up some awesome magic.
Not your thing?
Want to be a little less involved with the players? Maybe you just want to invoke the memory of some former players, in a more passive manner. As you drink your beer. In the late 70’s and early 80’s 7-11 produced cups with Tiger Williams, Harold Snepsts, and Darcy Rota‘s face all over them. So as Henrik Sedin is skating up the ice, you can knock back a cold one with a few of the legendary ones.
The set can be yours for the reasonable price of $44.99 on Ebay.
Still too active for you? Want to celebrate your team while being less active than that? How about a tee shirt? A nice simple white tee shirt from Reebok that you can slip on in the morning and keep on through the day will remind everyone including yourself that you love the Vancouver Canucks and refuse to believe the nay sayers. Want one?
That’s right, you can rewrite your team’s history.
What do you say? Any of these lots interest you? Have you bought something off of Ebay that’s a little odd?
