For DadNothing says "I love you Dad," like stinky lockers and used carpeting:
With only seven days remaining until Father's Day, Yankees-Steiner Collectibles, the exclusive provider of game-used memorabilia from the original and current Yankee Stadium, introduced a second lot of unique and iconic pieces of baseball history in the "Yankee Stadium Legends" online auction. People can now find once-in-a-lifetime gifts, perfect for sports-enthusiast Dads. The newest additions to the auction include:
Cast off the lockers! Follow the carpet! No! Let us gather lockers together!
Also available are 1'x1' pieces of live sod ($120) and "Final Season Crystals with Genuine Dirt from the original Yankee Stadium" ($80). I hope they come with certificates of authenticity, because I'd hate it if someone tried to sell me fake dirt from the Bronx.
A little memorabilia never hurt anyone, but I simply don't get this level of fetishism.

If you have F-you kinda money, this stuff might make sense. Anything less than that level of wealth and it’s just silly.

If you have F-you kinda money, skip this junk, count your blessings, and go buy a homeless guy a sandwich.

Actually, the homeless guy probably has more authentic Bronx dirt on him then these $80 crystals.

Gah, than* not then! Stupid homophones.

If you have F-you kinda money, you’re the target market for Yankees premium seating.
