A diehard Knick fan is so embarrassed and heartbroken by his favorite team, that he is now “auctioning” off his fanhood on eBay.
A diehard New York Knicks fan is apparently so embarrassed by his team that he has resorted to auctioning off his fanhood on eBay.
Yes, you heard that right. You can now by diehard Knicks fandom on eBay — for the right price, that is.
This is a story that one will have to read twice just to see if its true, but the following short tale is indeed a true story. An eBay user that goes by the name “evanperl” has recently put his Knicks fandom up for sale for the low price of $1,973.
Still, don’t believe us? Well, here’s the proof:
Now, that price actually has some meaning to it. If you remove the dollar sign and the apostrophe, you will find the year “1973,” which was the last time the Knicks won the NBA title.
Since then, the Knicks have had some frustrating years, and the team has hit rock bottom in the past few seasons, with the once-proud franchise hitting rock bottom in the standings, with no end to the darkness in sight.
This fan isn’t waiting around to see the light come to fruition.
To explain why he was “selling” his beloved Knicks fanhood, he wrote an exhausting 2,180-word eulogy detailing his former love for the Knicks, and why he has no other choice but to part ways with his fandom.
“infuriated New York Knicks fan has had enough, selling my fanhood,” he wrote. He opened this eulogy by explaining his love/hate relationship with the Knicks. He was there for the good old days, but now, his pain is just too much for him to hold on now.
So, his fandom is now for sale, and, believe it or not, there are already seven bids for it.
