Brentwood Woman Auctions Herself Off To Get A Prized Super Bowl Ticket - She Will Be Your Date At The Game
1/31: Update: Click here to read our exclusive, updated interview with Sarah the Bears fan
Super Bowl tickets are expensive. So are airplane tickets. So are rooms in Miami next weekend.
So what's a pretty 26-year-old on the West Side to do when her favorite team makes it to the Super Bowl? Auction herself off on eBay, of course.
Meanwhile, there are single, successful gentlemen everywhere who occasionally find themselves with an extra Super Bowl ticket laying around and loads of cash to spend on a young lady to simply hang out with him at the game and probably not give him sex.
Less than 24 hours ago a woman named Sarah, who claims to be a Cornell graduate, posted an auction on eBay which overnight soared to thousands, then to tens of thousands of dollars. It's now $99 million, which means it will probably have to be re-listed, as such a bid is probably not serious.
But unlike most hot babes auctioning themselves off for tickets, our local girl already has a place to stay in Miami as well as a flight; all she needs is that golden ticket.
Local blog Rivalfish -- which tipped us about this auction -- did a little net sleuthing and found her MySpace page, which shows that she grew up in exclusive Lake Forest, IL, and which contains several photos with celebs at the Playboy mansion.
We hate it when auctioning off dates on eBay gets muddled by online scammers. Maybe she will have better luck on Craigslist.
