Wrigley Field acquires extra toilets

Tuesday April 7th, 2015

After lengthy lines and disgusting conditions marred the Chicago Cubs' opener at Wrigley Field on Sunday, extra toilets have arrived.

@WrigleyRenovations, a Twitter account "documenting the Wrigley Field renovations as they happen," probably never thought it would be tweeting to 16,000 followers about extra toilets, but here we are.

The Cubs lost 3-0 to the St. Louis Cardinals on Opening Night 2015, but the larger story—in the midst of significant renovations to the hundred-year-old stadium—became the long lines at restrooms and people apparently resorting to relieving themselves in beer cups.

That's certainly good to hear. Now the Cubs just need to fix their offense.
