This morning we found a unique auction on eBay and we just had to reach out and talk to the man behind the story.
He’s a devout Michigan fan who has renounced his loyalty and is auctioning off his collegiate fandom to the highest bidder.
He’ll donate 80% of the profits to the Disaster Relief Fund.
If you’re the highest bidder by the December 2 deadline, you’ll get to decide who he roots for in the future and you’ll receive the following items:
Interview with Disgruntled Michigan Fan
1. Why did you decide to auction off your Michigan allegiance?
I have been an avid University of Michigan fan for my entire life. In 2001, my employer moved my to Northeast Ohio. Since then, Michigan has been pitiful, and the Buckeye fans are really good at constantly reminding me of it. In fact, I would say that Buckeye fans in Northeast Ohio are a quite aggressive bunch! After I put some thought into it, I figured this auction would be a fun way of raising some funds for the American Red Cross – as well as helping me stay sane in the heart of Buckeye country.
2. Which school do you hope wins your affections?
I just hope it isn’t Ohio State.
3. Why did you decide to donate the proceeds from this auction to the Disaster Relief Fund?
I work with our local Red Cross representative, helping to organize the blood drives at my place of employment. I greatly respect the Red Cross and their focus on saving lives. I don’t think people realize the impact the American Red Cross when it comes to helping those in need. The Red Cross was a perfect fit, and I was fortunate that they have partnered with eBay. It was an easy choice.
Obviously, we think you should bid immediately.
