When eBay blurs reality: The pink Oregon Ducks football helmet tantalizes, confounds

No doubt there are folks out there who think that the Oregon Ducks will be wearing pink helmets this Saturday. It is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, after all. And these are the Oregon Ducks. Behold this tweet, which has gone viral, indicating that the helmet is real.

Well, it is real … but sadly, only on eBay. Seller no48mc is letting this one-of-a-kind item go for a mere $280 (as of this writing), and it looks authentic in every way. New Riddell Revolution Speed design: the same as worn by the Ducks. Only pink. And just one day remaining to snap it up.

Who would want a pink football helmet? How about Jerry Jones? This would be a great item to display in the Victoria’s Secret Pink store at Cowboys Stadium. Jerry, get moving on this.

    If we did wear this helmet this weekend, it couldn’t be against a more appropriate opponent than the Mutts from whoreshington. The Ducks are secure enough in their man hoods and have the stones to not skip a beat while wearing pink.
