WINNIPEG -- Forget the 70-inch flatscreen, how about a Jumbotron for that new media room?

Just about anything and everything at the old Canad Inns Stadium is for sale once the regular football season ends in Winnipeg.

The last CFL game is Saturday and the 59-year-old facility that spent most of its life as Winnipeg Stadium is being torn down.

A new home for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers is nearing completion at the University of Manitoba, more than a year behind schedule.

So the team has announced an asset sale where everything, even the iconic and oft-maligned "trough" urinal for men, is on the block.

Season-ticket holders get to buy first from Nov. 29-Dec. 1, before the general public gets a crack at what's left.
