Man Pays $750 For Original Whizzinator
Total Pro Sports – Back in 2005 while going through security at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, ex-Vikings running back Onterrio Smith was stopped and detained for being in possession of The Whizzinator, a device with a prosthetic penis attached to a jock strap and filled with clean urine to help pass a drug test.
Now, The Whizzinator is back in the news after selling for $750 at an auction in Shakopee, Minnesota. The lucky buyer was Matt Little, a 26-year-old owner of Buster’s Sports Bar in Mankato.
“We’re a sports bar, and I’m a sports collector,” Little said. “I’d love to have the Original Whizzinator on display. … I’m going to use it.”
It is one of the stranger pieces of sports memorabilia, and while the story attached to it is much more interesting than a Tiger Woods Gatorade bottle, or even LeBron James’ high school scrap books, I wouldn’t think people would be interested in eating or drinking anywhere in the vicinity of Onterrio Smith’s fake penis.
