On Friday night, the Whizzinator formerly owned by former Vikings running back Onterrio Smith drew a winning bid of $750 at an auction of Smith-related memorabilia.
Per Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the item has been acquired by Matt Little, owner of Buster’s Sports Bar & Grill in Mankato, where the Vikings hold their training camp each year.
As it turns out, Little will get a write off; he plans to use the urine-test cheating tool as a decoration at the club.
“I want to be the new training camp headquarters for the Vikings,” Little said.
And so the device will be placed under
cglass and displayed among player jerseys. (Given the proximity to Vikings’ camp, where urine is annually harvested by the league office, perhaps Little should attach to the case a small hammer and a sign that reads “break glass in the event of emergency.”)
Meanwhile, Little also plans to bring Smith and his former property together. “I got a guy who knows Onterrio, so we want to do a reunion,” he said. “How classic would that be?“
Little also should buy the script to The John Bobbitt Story, and present an evening of dinner theater at the club.
The menu would sort of write itself.
