Sports Illustrated is holding an American Red Cross auction to assist Alabama in recovering from the recent tornado devastation. They have iconic photos available to bid on including some fantastic Bear Bryant pieces. One of my favorite photos is the above image of a 19-year-old Joe Namath watching the game from his Alabama sideline.
The hottest item is lunch with Sports Illustrated’s Peter King anywhere in the United States. I’d be all over this auction if it current bid wasn’t $1,850. I had the pleasure of briefly meeting Peter King last summer when he was passing through Baltimore’s Little Italy. You think he sounds smart in his columns, just wait until you hear him rattle out the facts off the top of his head.
