"And earlier this week...Seattle Mariners pitcher Jeff Nelson put bone chips from his surgically repaired right elbow on eBay. After 124 bids in about 24 hours pushed the price to $23,600, eBay ordered the chips removed, citing a rule prohibiting the auctioning of body parts."

I'd say this was a double post, but SportsFilter needs the posts these days, even if they're repeats. :)

Yeah, but it's like a quadruple post or something:) We spent more keystrokes on Gumgate than we did on the Canadian figure skaters. Not that it isn't nice to see kirkaracha posting.
