The second highest bid was $99,999,980.00. There were four other bids at or above the $60M mark.

It is supposedly (translation: not bloody likely) the cup that was thrown at Ron Artest. I'm sure eBay closed it because there was no proof that it was the cup. I would guess that hundreds if not thousands of identical cups were sold at the game that night and other nights. It would seem more than unlikely that a fan under (quote) "random, wild haymakers being thrown by Ron Artest, Stephen Jackson, Fred Jones, the Pistons peanut vendor, Ben Wallace's brother, Jermaine O'Neal, the guy in the clown wig, the guy in the Wallace shirt and the nerdy kid who got attacked by Artest" would be able to pick out which of the hundreds of identical cups on the floor was the one that hit Artest. Though the beating from the peanut vendor might explain he apparently lost the ticket stub showing he was at the game.

It's known as a Non Story. Shouldn't the SI article's headline more accurtely been CUP MOST PROBABLY NEVER THROWN AT RON ARTEST OFFERED ON EBAY.

Which would beg the question of why I was never interviewed by CNN or SI. I have lots of cups never thrown at Ron Artest. I even have a coffee mug never thown at Johnny Unitas, a chair never sat upon by Mario Andretti and newspapers not taken out to the curb by Cate Blachett. Where's my fame, boys?
