SATURDAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION - Wake up for breakfast at Wimbledon or sleep in for brunch.

ON WASHINGTONTIMES.COM ” AN EXCERPT FROM OUR SPORTSBIZ BLOG

Put this in the “some people will buy just about anything” category.

An anonymous bidder recently shelled out $55,000 for the dress shirt worn by Doc Rivers during the Celtics title-clinching win over the Lakers last week. The white ECC Life and Style shirt features mother-of-pearl buttons, hand-cut and turned cuffs, a hand-cut collar and a monogram.

Oh, and it has Gatorade all over it from when the Celtics’ Paul Pierce doused his coach after the win. All of the money will go to the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, which provides health care, shelter and other services to kids in the Boston area.
