COLT ON EBAY
By Danny Reagan / Abilene, Texas
Wouldn't you know it.
There I was on the Big Giant Head (the Internet) trying to find Associated Press photos of the UT games with Rice and Iowa State missing from our slideshows when Colt McCoy suddenly appeared on eBay.
There were a couple of autographed pictures of him (one with Mack Brown) for $7.95, a "Colt McCoy Texas Longhorns Super 12 Jersey T-shirt" for $8.50 (or you could "Buy it now for $10!") and a "limited edition" 8x10 painting for $14.99.
The latter appears to have been "photoshopped" from Tony Gutierrez' Associated Press photograph from the Oklahoma game (part of which makes up the masthead for this blog). You can see the complete photograph in Slideshow No. 2.
I guess you've really made the big time when other people have items about YOU on eBay. Not to mention a huge page on Wikipedia and 200,000-plus search results on Google.
BTW, back to football, the UT/Tech game will be televised on TBS this Saturday at 6 p.m. from Lubbock. Not sure who the announcers are, but I hope Charles Davis is one of them. He's a great analyst.
The kickoff time is a lot more "soccer-friendly" to those of us who have kids in youth programs. That may be about a jillion in the Lone Star State alone.
BTW2, I get absolutely zilch for giving eBay a free plug and Debra McCoy an idea for gifts for all the relatives this Christmas.
