Leafs fan purchases team's old toilet

This is what there is to write about when a lockout drags on as long as the current one has. A Toronto Maple Leafs fan, presumably one who misses spending tremendous amounts of money on watching his team finish outside the playoffs on an annual basis, just purchased a toilet for $5300.
