Gregg Popovich to Attend Benefit Wine Tasting

Some of you may know that the Spurs' fearless leader Gregg Popovich is quite the wine lover; he in fact has a collection of "about 3000." What the hell does that have to do with anything? Well, long story short, today I got an email from Mr. Damien Casten of Candid Wines. On Sunday, November 6th Coach Pop will be attending a benefit wine tasting in Hinsdale, Illinois. All proceeds will go to Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Association. The attendance is limited to twenty people and there are four tickets on eBay. (Search under "wine tasting" if that link doesn't work.) The opening bids are set at $500.

If you don't live in Chicago area or don't have that kind of scratch there are other ways you can help. Beginning October 31st there will some Spurs memorabilia auctioned off on eBay. Again, all proceeds will be donated. And they got some good stuff. I'm not talking about Jack Haley's game used socks; this stuff is creme de la creme. Take a look:

Autographed official NBA jerseys from Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. Also autographed kicks from the same trio! That's off the chizzle! I officially call dibs on Manu's.

I'll post a reminder when the auctions go live.
