CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A Michigan fan is so upset with his team this year, he's putting his team loyalty up for bid on eBay.

The seller, only identified by his eBay username as "lskyratl," writes that he's tired of losing, so the highest bidder will get to choose the team for which he'll root.

The seller says he'll do these six things:

1) denounce the University of Michigan by promising to never be a fan again and by getting rid of all Michigan-related items
2) allow the highest bidder to pick the team for which he'll be cheering
3) provide a notorized letter proclaiming the first two items
4) provide the highest bidder a video of the burning of his Michigan flag and gear
5) research and become "immersed" in the new team
6) announce his love to the new team via the web

So far, 32 people have bid on the auction, which is currently priced at $162.50.

Of course, the former Michigan fan still holds some animosity toward the Wolverines' #1 rival Ohio State. He threw in a disclaimer in the event the highest bidder picks the Buckeyes.

"However, in order to fit into the Ohio State culture, I might need some help reducing my I.Q. as well as learning to acquire an appetite for Slim Jim's and Pickled Pig's Feet," the seller wrote.

The seller says he plans to donate 60% of the winnings to charity and use the rest to buy fan gear for his new team.
