Keyshawn Johnson’s sofa, love seat and ‘otterman’ for sale on craigslist (pics)
Here’s a question with an easy answer: have you ever dreamed of purchasing second-hand a sofa set purportedly once owned by former NFL wide receiver-turned-ESPN NFL analyst Keyshawn Johnson? Duh. Of course you have! And thankfully, Gene is here to make all of your dreams come true.
For 500 smackeroos, the following, as expertly described in the craigslist listing, can be yours:
BLACK ITALIAN LEATHER COUCH AND LOVE SEAT COUCH LIKE NEW WAS KEYSHAWNS JOHNSON NEW WAS 7500 SELLING FOR 500 WITH LOVE SEAT BACK OF LOVE SEAT SOME DAMAGE COUCH EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH OTTERMAN CALL GENE
Whoa! Now hold on one minute here. Is Gene telling us that not only is he selling a sofa set once owned by Keyshawn Johnson — if that wasn’t valuable enough on its own — for a measly $500, but that the entire set brand-spanking-new was worth $7500? Talk about a steal!
I’m no expert on the value of second-hand sofas once sat on by NFL greats, but it seems to me that throwing in the “otterman” (a side note: I always thought an “otterman” looked like this) for that price? Well, poor Gene is really screwing himself over on this one. Granted, there is some damage, but we are talking about Keyshawn-freaking-Johnson here. Supposedly, of course.
Not that it attracts front-page coverage usually, but I heard there has been a rash of misleading craigslist listings that claim to be offering up furniture previously owned by former NFL wide receivers that have turned out to be total scams, so let the buyer beware, of course. For instance, I was just hoodwinked by some enterprising creep who fooled me into buying what he claimed to be Chris Carter’s coffee table. Boy, was I scammed. Chris Carter apparently doesn’t even like coffee!
