If the NHL decides to flush the rest of the season, Toronto Maple Leafs fan Jim Vigmond is ready.The Ontario lawyer purchased a toilet from the home dressing room of Maple Leaf Gardens for $5,300 at an auction, according to the Toronto Star. Vigmond had been trying to score a 1967 Stanley Cup banner but he said the bidding became too steep, so he went for the toilet. And he was willing to go as high as $10,000 on the commode, which his friends thought was a little out there. "They thought I had money to burn, and surely there was something that I could have better spent my money on," he said, according to the newspaper. "They've got a point. But ... it's a part of an icon. I just thought ... what a rare piece and just think of all of the people that have spent time contemplating in that dressing room what lies ahead of them." Maple Leaf Gardens was home to the Leafs from 1931-99. More than 100 items from the arena were up for auction. Vacant for several years after the Leafs left for the Air Canada Centre, the Gardens was recently converted into a small arena for nearby Ryerson University and a grocery store. Vigmond told the Star that the toilet will go in his sports memorabilia room. He'd like to sit on it, light a Cuban cigar, drink some single-malt scotch and watch a Leafs game, if the season doesn't go down the drain.
