Own a piece of history, own a piece of art,
help a worthy cause

We received an email alerting us to an eBay auction to benefit Habitat for Humanity. The question of course is what does that have to do with the Steelers?

It turns out that, using scraps of steel from the demolished Orange Bowl, artistic "representations" of all 32 NFL teams have been created and are being auctioned, with the proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity.

As we write this the bid for the Steelers item (pictured above) is at $910 (shipping is free). The highest bid for any item is by a Baltimore Ravens fan (the bid for that item is at $1,225), and that just seems unacceptable!

Bidding ends on Thursday, February 5, 2009.
