I can’t say I knew this was going to happen. In the wake of Team USA’s win over Russia in the Davis Cup finals, an enterprising ballboy snagged a half-eaten banana from the trash and put it up on eBay.
Anything that has touched Andy Roddick‘s lips is worth at least $.99, I say. (Plus $8 in shipping.)
“The banana was taken from the players garbage it was eaten by Andy Roddick! yes the HOT ANDY RODDICK for all you female fans out there! I put it in with a picture of Davis Cup Ball Boy gear as proof of me being a ball boy! The Item is Sold AS IS, and returns are NOT ALLOWED. Please don’t bid if you are NOT a serious buyer and intend to not pay for the item.”
And in case the winner had plans to display this prized piece of Americana on their mantle, a clarification from the seller:
“NOTE- I MAKE NO PROMISES OR GUARANTEES ON THE CONDITION OF THE BANANA AFTER SHIPPING AND YOU MUST BID AT YOUR OWN RISK. [...] Also the banana is a souvenir NOT TO EAT! IT IS A SOUVENIR”
(Thanks for the tip, Randy!)
