Old McJordan sauce fetches hefty price

Posted: October 17, 2012

WHAT'S A GALLON of 20-year-old barbecue sauce worth?

Almost $10,000 if it was left over from the days that McDonald's sold the McJordan sandwich, named after former NBA star Michael Jordan.

According to an ESPNChicago.com report, a man from Chicago bought the sauce on eBay for $9,995.

"I've got quite a bit of McDonald's memorabilia," said Mort Bank, who sold the sauce and was once the owner of a Mickey D's in North Dakota. "This was on my shelf, and my daughter who helps me with eBay said, 'I wonder what something like this would be worth?'

"I said, 'I can't imagine anyone else saved it.' It only could have been another owner-operator. We decided to see what we could get . . . I said I can remember a chicken nugget someone said looked like Jesus that sold on eBay for what, $6,000? You have to use your imagination to to even think it looks like that. This is an actual product."

So is our autographed jar of Mitch Williams Wild Thing Southpaw Salsa. We'll let it go for mere $5,000.

Bring your blankees

The Chicago Tribune reported that Northwestern football coach Pat Fitzgerald is demanding the Wildcats take a mandatory nap about 5 hours before its 2:30 p.m. kickoff against Nebraska on Saturday.

Seems Fitzgerald noticed that his players came out flat for their last 2:30 game, against Boston College last month, and he thinks a nappy-poo will help.

By the way, Northwestern beat BC, 22-13.

Remember when?

It was 23 years ago today that an earthquake in San Francisco killed 67 people and forced the postponement of Game 3 of the 1989 World Series. The Athletics went on to sweep the Giants, 4-0.


We take full responsibility for Tuesday's gaffe in which we stated Mike Krzyzewski was a teammate of Bobby Knight's at Army when actually Coach K was a player under Knight at West Point. We have to do a better job as coaches, players, writers and editors. Seriously, we regret the flub.
