The Destroyer of Shea


!BTvO8cw!mk~$(KGrHgoH-D4EjlLl0WegBKKBDgQKT!~~_1If you have $35,000 lying around your place I have the PERFECT investment for you; the wrecking ball that destroyed Shea Stadium is available on eBay.

According to the very terse description, this auction is for the “AUTHENTIC ONE AND ONLY 3TON GINNOW STEELWRECKING BALL USED TO DEMOLISH THE FAMOUS SHEA STADIUM IN 2008!”

You can’t put a price on history like that. Except, obviously the $35,000 starting bid. I have to imagine this collector’s item would be a natural fit in any sports fan’s game room. It’s like a Fat Head, but cooler.

    slanch – if you find out someone buys this, please go the extra mile and post his address, so I can find him and punch him for not just giving me that money. Seriously, I know it’s “cool” and all, but is someone really going to throw their money away on this? please, just give me a piece of it…

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE! AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND PASS THIS ALONG!
