Yours for $125!
Last week we wrote about an interesting opportunity to put schadenfreude to work for a good cause.

A broken 9-Iron splayed across a framed photo of Tiger Woods mocking the golfer's exploding sex bomb woes went under the gavel at the KNBR charitable sports auction. What a combination: One could poke fun at the vanquished facade of Tiger Woods, Inc. while raising dollars for the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame Youth Program.

It was too good an offer for Andy Jenkins to pass up. The Redwood City contractor put down a $125 bid on the item; SF Weekly's call to ask him why informed Jenkins that he'd won the auction. Jenkins told us that he had no intention of burying Woods -- he wants to praise him.

"Oh, I'm an absolute fan," he said. "But it's unique. I have sports memorabilia in my house and this is unique. It's the biggest news story we have and probably will have for the rest of the year."

Well, he's probably right. And he's definitely the proud new owner of something very unique indeed.
