Miami blisters San Antonio, but Spurs toasters, fake tats are still for sale

Posted By on Tue, Jan 17, 2012 at 9:20 PM

Upon the sound of the buzzer marking the end of the first half, the Spurs lead the host Miami Heat 63 - 49. Life was good. Roles dramatically reversed as the Spurs were outscored by a whopping 27 points in the third quarter and 36 overall in the second half. Final score: 120 - 98, Heat. The humiliating loss extends the Spurs’ road woes as they move to 0 -5 on the year. Instead of revisiting the second half meltdown, let’s partake in retail therapy. Because tonight’s game left Spurs fans with more questions than answers, Spuriosity wants to add to your confusion by presenting you with the five most questionable items for sale in the Spurs NBA.com team store (click on product images for store link):

Your eyes aren't lying. This toaster leaves the Spurs logo on your toast. Consider this part of a Breakfast of Champions.

Available for each of the NBA's 30 teams, this is one of those purchases one would say you bought "just because of the packaging." Maybe this is only hearsay, but I heard the Miami Heat version tastes extra bitter.

The Spurs Memo Pad Holder was picked solely because of its product staging. First, look at the old-school Nokia telephone in the background. Notice the fake leaf making a random appearance. Finally, read the written message, "Meet Ralph and Mike at the pond tomorrow - 5:30 am sharp!"

According to the product description, Fan Ink affords fans the opportunity to display their team spirit without the lifetime commitment. However, they fail to mention your reputation could be compromised in wearing one.
