murphy.jpgDo you like baseball? Sure, you do! That’s why you’re here.

Do you like ketchup? Who doesn’t? Goes great on hot dogs, hamburgers, and a hot fudge sundae (minus whipped cream, obviously).

Do you have a completely unhealthy and utterly creepy fetish revolving around Matt Murphy, the Mets fan who caught Barry Bonds’ 756th homerun and want a piece of him and his musk around your bedroom for the rest of your life?

Well then do I have something for you!

In phase one of milking the 756th cash-cow, Murphy isĀ auctioning off the Jose Reyes jersey he wore on that fateful, historic, eventful night on eBay. And he hasn’t washed it since so it still has the real ketchup stains – the war wounds, if you will – he incurred going after the ball. And on top of it all, he’s generously offering to autograph it. By hand! As of this writing, the highest bid is $112.50 so get goin’ while the gettin’s good!

Next item up for bid: Matt Murphy’s soiled underpants which were “authenticated” at the moment he realized that 756 was coming at him.

One Response to “He’s going to ride this wave as long as he can, isn’t he?”
