The ladies of the 800.com team have gone to e-bay to look for a sponsor, you can get your name on the jersey for just $100,000:

When I heard about the auction I was going to throw in a bid for ~50 cents, but the damn opening price is $100,000? The thing is, $100,000 is a HUGE budget for a team of that size and quality. I mean, these are mediocre women pros- you could sponser a decent mens team for that much.

This is interesting. I'm putting the site on "watch" on "my eBay." I would have put in a bid for a buck or 2 myself - they really should have started with $1.00 and gone for volume. Is it Canadian or US? I'm afraid my credit limit is too low for this one. Maybe they can attract attention and come up with sponsor money. I'll bet their travel budget is enormous.
can't see their old sponser on the jerseys...Tig

...the green logo looks a little like "Mr. Yuck" or "VW".
