Default Wrigley Is Number 1...

That is according to the website UFE (Urine Feces Everywhere)

Damn, Craw, you beat me to it!

This is of no surprise. It's a rare sight if you actually *do* see a guy wash his hands in a Wrigley bathroom.

Another reason aside from "holding a beer," as the article states, is that there are sometimes, especially on really crowded games, guys actually peeing in the sinks.

The article was mentioned on WGN Radios Brandmeier show today. CBS has an article on it too. Pardon me for not genuflecting towards Wrigley.

That was common at Old Comiskey as well. Guys were lined up to pee in the sinks.

I remember guys using the sink and garbage cans at a Boston concert at the Amphitheatre.

I've seen sink pissing at the Cell, too. But some piss vs. a lot of piss is the issue!

Scary thing is most people don't think about this when they go about things there.

Not really, you'd be surprised at what's growing in your kitchen.

Anyway, to get a little back on track - what is it with men not washing their hands at sporting events? Let's hear from some of you who will admit to not doing it.

I have seen guys not only not wash their hands, but not wash their hands after planting their hand on the wall during a stance at the urinal.

Ugh.

To be fair, cash is about the dirtiest thing out there and how many people run to wash their hands after buying a beer or a brat?

Agreed. It's not just sporting events either. I've seen college students - and even college faculty and staff - not wash their hands after defecating. In fact, I know a few health care professionals who don't wash their hands after using the restroom.

I frequently pee in the sink and then washing my hands also serves as a "flush". Saves water IMO so I'm not going to rip on Cubs fans for doing that.
