An Ontario lawyer is now the proud owner of a toilet from the Toronto Maple Leafs’ former dressing room.
Jim Vigmond, of Barrie, Ont., bought the unusual item for $5,300 at auction after the piece he really wanted — the 1967 Stanley Cup banner — got too expensive.
The toilet was offered up along with more than 100 items from Maple Leaf Gardens, which was home to the NHL team until 1999.
Vigmond plans on putting the toilet in his sports memorabilia room, where he wants to sit on it, light up a Cuban cigar, open a bottle of 30-year-old single malt, and hopefully, watch a Leafs game sometime soon.
