In case you weren't already aware, you only have 20 shopping days left until Christmas, so if you haven't gotten your shopping/Wal-Mart killing spree started yet, you should probably get started on that already. Of course, some people are really hard to shop for which is where gift cards come in handy, but there are some people in your life where gift cards are just too impersonal.
I remember when I was a kid it was easy. I would just buy my mom some crappy piece of jewelry they sold at Santa's Workshop day at school, and I would get my dad some underwear. Well these days it's a bit tougher, and it's too bad my old man isn't a Yankees or a Red Sox fan because if he was I'd be able to keep the underwear tradition alive.
Got a Yankees fan on your Christmas list? Or maybe a Red Sox groupie you want to aggravate? Well, why just buy them an A-Rod shirt when you can get Alex Rodriguez's authentic game-used underwear????
Now there's a gift that keeps on giving!
And in case you were wondering -- and I know you were -- they are in fact game used. As for how Phil got his hands on them, he's not saying and frankly I'm not sure I want to know. The bidding starts at $9.99, and though Castinetti said he'd put them up for auction today, as of this very moment there are no listings. I guess he wants to build suspense.
