    Clemente's Plane Pulled From Auction

    Thank god. Just that they thought of putting something like that out there for consumers makes me sick to my stomach. Roberto would be turning in his grave that people thought that way. What's next, vials of Ted Williams's frozen DNA??

    NEW YORK -- Debris from the plane crash that killed Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente was pulled from a memorabilia auction after his family threatened a lawsuit.

    Seaford, N.Y.-based Lelands.com announced Friday it was pulling two items -- a light metal piece of the airplane and a gray steel propeller -- from the collection of four dozen Clemente mementos.

    Yeah, I saw that, made me happy that they pulled it. Pretty sleezy to have it up there to begin with though.

    Kind of relieved that Ted's scumbag son is dead, or he'd be reading this and rubbing his hands together gleefully, wondering why he hadn't thought of it first.
