Tebow Fans, You Could Call This a “Cheesy” eBay Listing!
The end of the football season is no reason to not have a touch of Tebow, Tim Tebow that is, in your life. One eBay seller recently offered a grilled cheese sandwich that seemed to resemble the NFL’s Denver Broncos quarterback.
According to the listing, eBay Seller “carlspackler76” of Roanoke, Virginia, was just quickly making lunch with a less than perfect frying pan one day when he was “thoroughly amazed by the image staring back [at him]... the now iconic "Tebowing" pose of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow!”
The auction began at only 99 cents on January 13, 2012. After receiving 46 bids, it ended on January 20, 2012 at a whopping $85.00! And just think, this success story started with two slices of bread, a slice of American cheese, and poorly performing cookware.
Below is a screenshot of the actual listing on eBay after the bidding was over.
After the seller froze the sandwich and carefully packed it with dry ice, the package was shipped to it winning bidder. As I write this, the buyer has not provided any feedback. I can’t help but wonder if it ended up as lunch anyway!
