Oftentimes in sports, you'll hear the following phrase: so-and-so isn't fit to carry that guy's jock. For example: "You aren't fit to carry Tyler Seguin's jock," someone might say, impugning your fitness while similarly extolling the virtue, caliber and weight of Tyler Seguin's jock. What a jock.
But now you don't need to be fit enough to carry Tyler Seguin's jock. You just need to have $250. Because that's how much it will cost you to buy it on eBay.
Why would you want this, you may be asking? After all, it's... tainted, as it were. Well. I submit to you, because it's the cup.
Another question you may be asking: how did someone get this? From the item description:
Up for sale is Tyler Seguin’s game used cup from his jock strap. Acquired after the Bruins had flopped to the Capitals in the 1st round. The cup was purchased before the annual Bruins equipment sale at Pure Hockey in Medford. My buddy worked at Pure Hockey and manage to set aside a few items. One of the items was the jock strap. The fabric of the jock strap had a nasty sweat smell plus was torn on the side so I threw it out but kept the plastic cup. Purchasing the cup was ment (sic) to be a joke. Comes with a COA.
That's right. It comes with a certificate of authenticity, so you know Tyler Seguin actually got sweat from his nethers in this thing. And you could have it in your home! Perhaps proudly displayed on a mantle?
Granted, it would be worth more if the seller had kept the fabric portion, which reeked of undercarriage sweat, and worse, was torn, but still, what a get this would be.
Although I could see why you might want to hold out for a cup from his time in Dallas, where he's broken out as a star. If you're going to shell out $250, you definitely don't want to spend it on the groin shield of a third-liner. Did you see his minutes in that series versus the Capitals? This is lightly-used, at best.
