If you had a couple of cups of coffee this morning, and needed a break somewhere between Bud Grant’s garage sale and going out for a hot dog lunch with Johnny Manziel, you’re in luck.

According Paul Walsh of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, urinal troughs from the Metrodome have been sold in an online auction.

The stainless steel beauties, through which passed many recycled stadium beers and the hopes and dreams of Vikings, Twins and Gophers fans, sold for up to $375.

It’s good to know that on Memorial Day weekend, we can honor the brave who fought and gave so much to this country so we could be free to whiz away our dollars on the only thing in Minneapolis that’s been number one in the last few decades.
