Cool Your Beverages In an Authentic Metrodome Trough


Frequent visitors to the old Metrodome rest rooms can now own one of the very troughs they used to relieve themselves into back in the day. LCS Auctions is taking bids for the iconic troughs right now online, and if you hurry, you can still get in.

At last check there were about six hours left in the auction, and prices were still relatively low, with one trough carrying a top bid of $63.00 (or 61 dollars more than a new Christian Ponder jersey).

These troughs aren’t only good for starting conversations, they can also be used for feeding livestock and cooling beverages, according to the auction house.

Think how awesome that would be, cooling your beer in one of the massive steel urine receptacles that used to receive your Metrodome beer after it had been processed by your kidneys.

Is that awesome or gross?

Anyway, if you’ve ever wanted to own a true piece of Minnesota sports history, now is your chance. There are only a few troughs available and just like a running back’s knees, when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Don’t miss out.
