Thanks to Twitter follower @1mattstephenson for bringing to our attention the news that Alexei Yashin and his actress/supermodel wife Carol Alt are making themselves available for charity.
By visiting the website CharityBuzz.com, the public can bid on a number of opportunities to spend time with celebrities. You can play a round of golf with Alice Cooper, learn the art of falconry (the fuck?) from Robert F. Kennedy or you could win the following…
Damn, who wouldn't want to spend time with a faux-HHOF and a woman who has been in feature films like To Rome With Love, Howard Stern's biopic Private Parts or the unforgettable Beyond Justice.
The plot summary sounds enthralling.
"A woman's ex-husband, who is the son of an Arab chieftain, kidnaps their teenage son and brings him back to Morocco, where the boy is to be made the leader of the tribe. The child's mother hires a mercenary to get her son and bring him back to her."
Considering the highest bid to this point is only $500, I feel compelled to place a bid; that is, until I catch myself, realizing that Mark Gandler will inevitably involve himself in the process – requesting that Yashin holds out for a larger bid.
As such, I offer my heartiest congrulations to the eventual winner, Mike Milbury – who I have no doubt, will massively overpay for Yashin's services.
