Thanks to Eleven Warriors' Michael Citro, I now know about the best event going on in central Ohio this week.
Mike Vrabel, the Ohio State legend turned recruiting ace, was poached earlier this year by Bill O'Brien and the Houston Texans. As such, the Vrabels will be moving south, but not before auctioning off some ridiculous swag.
Here are the pertinent details, via the auction's site:

What kind of stuff is available? I'm glad you asked, because among typical household items (outdoor furniture, TVs, high end rugs, etc) are some of Mike Vrabel's treasures.
Authentic Terrell Owens Number 81. 2008 Pro-Bowl NFL Jersey. Good Condition [Link]
Awesome Collector's item A Key To the Village of St. Henry Presented To MIKE VRABEL SUPER BOWL CHAMP ~ Condition Very Good [Link]

I'm still a bit shocked Vrabel is willing to let that authentic Terrell Owens Pro Bowl jersey go, but money is money, I suppose.
