    Mom vs. Kobe

    Kobe Bryant in Spat With Mom, Auction House Over Memorabilia - ABC News

    Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard, is embroiled in a legal spat with his mother and an auction house in New Jersey that is selling over 100 items from his early basketball career.

    Goldin Auctions LLC, which is holding an auction on an unspecified date in June of items from Bryant's childhood in Italy, his high school years in Pennsylvania and his early years in the NBA, filed a lawsuit against him on Thursday.
    Say it ain't so, Mom.

    Kobe may want to start his own museum.

    Nice analogy. Many of us have probably suffered a very similar fate. For me, it was my aquariums and lighting equipment, etc. that retailed for well over $1800 over all the years, but sold at a garage sale for $10. It was my fault for not hauling it out sooner though.

    As Yoda would say: painful, are these memories;-)
