10 Sports Metaphors Applicable to Penny Auctions

10 Sports Metaphors Applicable to Penny Auctions

In honor of the recent (tentative) deal to end the NBA lockout, let’s look at some sports metaphors and quotes and relate them to penny auctions!

1. You can’t score if you don’t shoot.

How are you going to score that hot new iPhone4s if you don’t get a bid pack and start bidding?

2. Step up to the plate.

Don’t bid half-heartedly on items you don’t want. Commit to the play and play to win!

3. Anticipate the play.

For every bidding site you join, you should study your opponents to know when they are going to bid, and bid accordingly.

4. There’s no crying in baseball.

There’s no crying in penny auctions either.

5. Don’t choke.

Visualize yourself winning that Kindle Fire! Prepare by stocking up on bids. Strategize and follow through.

6. If the game plan isn’t working, adjust.

Doing everything according to your bidding plan but still find yourself losing? Tweak your strategy a little and see what happens. Repeat as necessary.

7. Roll with the punches.

In a penny auction, things won’t always go your way. Use your mental fortitude to focus on your goal of winning that MacBook Air auction!

8. Know when to throw in the towel.

Before you start bidding, decide on a bid budget. When you reach said budget, stop. This will save you a lot of future pain.

9. It’s a whole new ball game.

So you struck out in that last auction. No use dwelling on it, regroup and prepare for the next penny auction!

10. Be a good sport. Accept victory and defeat graciously.

Entertainment shopping is as much about having a good time as it is the end result.
