Charles Oakley wants to cook someone dinner. Might as well be us.

SHARE Charles Oakley wants to cook someone dinner. Might as well be us.

We’re excited about this one. There’s a charity auction on eBay right now where you can bid on the opportunity for you and ten of your friends to have a lovely dinner prepared for you by none other than former NBA all-star Charles Oakley.

This is a serious auction, with portions of the proceeds headed to a couple of reputable charities. The bid is currently $357. We can’t swing that with our meaty Sports Pros(e) salaries, but perhaps if some of you readers want to go in on it with us, we can all hang with Mr. Oakley in my cozy Wrigleyville apartment.Currently no word on whether he promises to keep his shirt on … or off, whichever you may find more savory.The best part though has to be the free shipping. Now you’re talking, Chuck!
