Remember when Ohio State Buckeyes offensive lineman Marcus Hall got into an altercation with some players from the Michigan Wolverines? Remember when he was ejected and walked out of the stadium with his head — and middle fingers — held high? Well, it looks like the former collegiate lineman will be getting rich because of that infamous moment.
Hall is apparently cashing in on that unfortunate event by selling autographed pictures of the exact moment when his double-bird was heard around the world. Take a look at the autographed photo that is being sold anywhere from $15 to $25 at local retailers:
Think a 1.5 game suspension was worth it for Marcus Hall in the long run? pic.twitter.com/jRAbcdCyN3

The tweet of the picture does beg a pretty good question. I’m guessing that 1.5 game suspension handed to him by head coach Urban Meyer and the Big Ten officials was well worth it now that he is getting rich off the moment. In fact, it was such a notable moment that the picture even claimed it as such — by even spelling it wrong, too. Yes, it’s “notable” not “noteable”. That would be an autographed picture fail.
It seems as if Marcus Hall doesn’t regret his actions during the Michigan game in the finals weeks of the 2013 season. As long as he gets paid for flipping off hundreds of thousands of fans, he’s got to be happy.
Hall is entering the NFL draft this year and hopes to be a late-round pick, but that’s not a guarantee — hence why he is selling such a picture.
Stay classy, Marcus.
