Have you ever wondered what happends to the sporting event (Super Bowl, NBA Finals, World Series, etc.) merchandise of the "non-winning" (loser sounds so harsh!) team? 

Well, my brother Jon pointed out this article in the NY Times regarding the fate of these collector items.  After reading the article, I don't know what to think...it was this paragraph shocked me the most:

By order of the National Football League, those items are never to appear on television or on eBay. They are never even to be seen on American soil.


This way, the N.F.L. can help one of its charities and avoid traumatizing one of its teams.
