With Belgian fans having little to concern themselves with football-wise this summer, a group of them have put themselves on Ebay offering their service to the highest bidder…
Here’s the sales pitch:
“During Euro 2012, all members of our Facebook group will root for the national soccer team of the highest bidder, or the national team of his choice. Even if it’s Holland.
“We will watch the games, wear the colors, may possibly just buy the flag and learn the national anthem. Pictures and videos will be made and presented to the winning bidder to be posted on his or her website. Slight hooliganism is available at extra cost.
“We can, for example, kick a pigeon or smoke in a non-smoking area if such pleases our master. Once the team is eliminated, we will grieve for 24 hours and then put ourselves for sale again on Ebay. Hopefully joined by the previous winner since he or she will have become an orphan also by then.”
Bidding is currently hovering around the €16 mark and all profits go to Unicef.
