Wrigley Field troughs will be history

Tom Ricketts wants male Cubs fans to wait in line to use the restroom. I don’t like this guy. I don’t like him one bit.

The infamous Wrigley Field mens’ restroom urinal troughs will be gone next season and I’m not happy about it. It’s new Cubs owner, Tom Rickett’s top priority according to chicagobusiness.com.
As a fan or owner, you
re just not proud of that part of the experience,
he said. Grow up and man up, Tom. Sheesh.

I never had a problem with the Wrigley Field troughs. They were extremely efficient. You go in the restroom, keep your head down, take care of business, wash your hands, and get out. What’s wrong with that?

Never did I ever have to wait to find an open spot. Sure there was always a crowd at the restroom entrance at the end of games, but it was never a standing crowd. It was always moving with a steady pace. Once you get in you just keep walking slowly with the crowd until an open spot appears. And you follow the keep-your-head-down-and-take-care-of-business standard. Never did I have to stop and wait in line at the end of a game to take a leak. Never.

Tom Ricketts wants to change a perfectly functional system and make it nonfunctional. What’s he gonna do? Add urinals? That will greatly minimize the amount of people that can take a leak at the same time. This is bad. This is really bad. I do NOT want to wait in line. Tom Ricketts, you’re stupid.

Men waiting in line for the restroom!? What’s he trying to do, turn guys into women!? Get him out of the toilet and get him to make some real changes … changes that would really matter. What happened to his quote in chicagotribune.com about building a World Series Team? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot does that have to do with male fans waiting in line like so many women!?

Ricketts will sink all this money making unnecessary improvements on Wrigley Field, then he will jack up the ticket prices saying, “oh but now you have a quality experience at Wrigley Field never seen before.”

Right. I don’t care about urinals in the bathroom. I don’t care about getting quality food at Wrigley. Give me the traditional ballpark, a hot dog, and a decent Cubs team, and i’m happy. DO NOT MAKE ME PAY $50+ FOR A TICKET. I don’t want to pay more to have stupid things like urinals.
