I just got done watching Rocky Balboa, and that put me in the mood to read up on what’s going on in the real boxing world these days. While I was checking through some different websites, I came across a press release about how BackgammonMasters.com, a favorite destination for those who enjoy playing backgammon online, recently paid an enormous amount of money for heavyweight boxer Roman Greenberg’s trunks. In doing so, BackgammonMasters is essentially sponsoring Greenberg in his quest to make it to the world championship.
I also read that BackgammonMasters will be auctioning off Greenberg’s famous gold and black trunks (featuring the Star of David to reflect Roman’s Jewish heritage). That means a lucky fan could walk away with a truly unique piece of boxing memorabilia from an up-and-coming star with a 25-0 professional record! Plus, all proceeds from the auction will go to charities that benefit Arab and Jewish youths, so you can feel good about bidding the price way up. That’s a pretty cool cause for a backgammon site to get involved in.
I’m including a photo of Greenberg’s trunks so you can see what you’ll be bidding on. Be sure to visit BackgammonMasters.com for further details about the auction — and of course to play some online backgammon while you’re there! I will definitely be following up on this auction. I can’t wait to see how much the trunks go for!!
