Couldn't get a ticket to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao? A bag of air from the MGM Grand can be yours, thanks to the wonderful corner of the web we call eBay.
As you can imagine, the details are all a bit suspect. The bag's condition is listed as used, for one. The labeling isn't entirely legible, and if you think about it, bags of air don't usually come with verification of origin. This could just as well be a gulp of breath from Pacquiao's viewing party in the Philippines, which based on levels of excitement, would be clearly worth more.
The biggest red flag? The bag starts at a bidding price of $0.99, a steal that's just too good to be true. Troublesome, if you ask me. Username iloveaugust2011, I'm calling your bluff. Doesn't sound all that trustworthy. It's all there for you.
Buyers, I tried to tell you. But if you're among the interested, you have until Sunday to bid.
