ANYTHING BUT THE TROUGHS:

Flush with cash? BoSox toilet may fill your needs (Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa, July 27, 2006, Boston Herald)

How would you like to pee where Roger Clemens, Johnny Damon and heck yes, even Bill Buckner peed???? Well then, here’s your dream come true!

Lelands, the New York sports memorabilia auction house, is selling the potty that stood inside the home dugout. The very bowels of Fenway Park, so to speak.

The prize piece of porcelain “got up close and very personal with the likes of Boggs, Ramirez, Damon and Pedro,” the auction catalogue brags.

The possibly Cursed crapper was installed just prior to the doomed 1986 season and was ripped out during the clubhouse renovations in 2004 - taking its bad john juju with it! Lelands said it got the one-of-a-kind artifact from the construction crew that renovated the old ballyard. [...]



“Last year we sold the urinal from the Cardinals clubhouse to a St. Louis area urologist for over $2,100. He put it in his office,” said auction house spokesguy Doug Drotman. “The Cardinals fans are pretty rabid about their team but there are not many more avid collectors than Red Sox fans.”

And, as Lelands points out, this is the throne that “caught Clemens.”

The hardball loo is up for grabs at www.lelands.com for 30 days.


I'm almost afraid to tell W. Hodding Carter.

[And here I thought that flushing sound was the White Sox circling the bowl.]
