Bid now in an auction to box with Desmond Howard.

With the ESPYs right around the corner, ESPN is cranking up fundraising efforts for the V Foundation and one "unique experience" is rather inviting.

Enjoy an all-access Boxing training session with Heisman Trophy Winner, Super Bowl MVP & ESPN CFB Analyst Desmond Howard in Miami, Florida!  Winning bidder will experience a 60-minute one-on-one training session with Desmond, who has been working hard lately at honing his athletic skills in the boxing ring.  Following your workout, you will enjoy a private lunch with Desmond and also receive an autographed photo and football.

That's right. This is your chance to sock Desmond Howard and not go to jail for it.

The auction runs for another six days and the top bid is currently $202.50. So, what's the most efficient way to raise some scratch to send one of you into the ring with Howard?

Screw how to raise the money (donations will pour in), how are we gonna decide which one of us we send. I vote for BuckeyeChief cuz I wouldn't mess with a Navy man. Everyone post your boxing stats or reasons you would be best to go!

Agreed, we need to find the biggest, baddest 11 Dubber and all sponsor him.  We may not do anything more important all year.

Italics are for emphasis.

Not only sponsor him, but we need to get him plenty of coaching and training before the event so we get our money's worth.

I think ALL of Columbus needs to chip in and support The Torg to win the training...that would be an amazing circle of life event.

If I could UV this comment 100 times I would.

My first thought was that this was a much more worthy Kickstarter idea...

Wow. What an opportunity to knock that dude out and not go to jail. Will hope someone applies a proper beating to that annoying POS.

My thoughts ... it would go something like this ..

Whoever we send is bound by The Premium Lounge Counsel to burn the autographed photo immediately after the change of hands.

Or use it as toilet paper.

I don't box, but I will fight. If the auction was to " have drinks with Desmond Howard in a dark, smoke filled bar. Argue loudly over the greatest rivalry in sports. Fight until the police arrive."  I'm all in.

Tressel should bid. He'd definitely win and he can extend his win streak over *ichigan one further.

Like to see someone knock his butt out , then go over and place him in his heisman pose as he lay on the canvas!!!

Or better yet, knock him out, then do the Heisman pose over him.

For the right guy, I would match the current bid by myself.

I will be in South Africa donating my time and resources into veterinarian care for lions, cheetahs, leopards and other big cats (this is what I do for a living). If we could get him to fly out there, I could add a different dimension to the sparring lesson...doing it in a cage full of lions.

Only way they generate more revenue is by having Mark May do this instead of Howard. Then again some may be too respectful to hit a guy wearing women's underwear so maybe not.

How much fun would it be to watch Howard and May punch the piss out of each other!?!!

Would probably look like these two slapping each other.

I don't need that part about getting a signed football and having dinner with him.
