    Wait, there are center troughs where you face the people on the other side? Is that true??

    I'm a fan of the trough style restrooms actually. Can get people in/out quicker. Used to have them at Jack Trice and ever since they removed them the men's lines seem longer.

    god, just be thankful we aren't in the women's shoes! They are the ones with long lines. I remember seeing the chiefs play the raiders in 04, and there was an inch of water and filth in a men's room and it had a trough.

    Re: Wrigley Troughs to Survive Restroom Renovations

    Man, these things should be illegal. Nothing ruins a good day at a sporting event for me faster than walking into the restroom and seeing the dreaded trough. It makes me feel like some kind of farm animal. For the price of a ticket to these places, a proper urinal doesn't seem to be too much to ask. I prefer a little privacy myself, it is a ballgame, not prison.

    Re: Wrigley Troughs to Survive Restroom Renovations

    I don't see who ever thought that was a good idea, unless it was a WWII-era architect.

    Speaking of, at Fort McCoy, WI, the restroom in our WWII-era barracks had to long trough, and also 8 stools, four on each side, facing each other. That was awkward.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I agree with this. Plus it gives a place "character."

    I remember my first game at Kinnick. I walked into the bathroom, and none of the stalls had doors. I walked by some old dude dropping a deuce. Gross.

    Re: Wrigley Troughs to Survive Restroom Renovations

    Stagefright is terrible. It always seems horribly obvious that you're standing there not going... like people are going to think you just came in to peak some dicks.

    So then you have to try to force it out... and as you're pushing you're combating a dirty fart that you easily could have dropped while you were outside 10 seconds ago but you weren't thinking. Bathrooms are so complicated.

    Hope I'm not alone on this.


    Kinnick smells like syrup.
