  •  This is no joke (9+ / 0-)

    Most stadiums have very few ladies restrooms.  As they are being rebuilt, demands for more have topped the list of what female fans want.

    Frankly, I prefer to see the game at home dressed in my Packer gear.  Easy access to the kitchen and bathroom with NO lines and no money changes hands with vendors.

      attest, you at least have commercial breaks, so you can do your business, I prefer home or the occasional sports bar for my NFL games.

        Women post "guards" outside the mens rooms and go in to use it.  When mens facilities outnumber womens 4:1 or more, we get creative.

    •  I think there are two factors... (1+ / 0-)

      1) History: In the old days (50 years ago), there were many more men who were football fans, so the stadium architects put in more men's rooms (which makes sense, sort of).

      2) Biology: In my experience (as a man), a lot of stadiums have a big long trough for men to pee into. You walk in, pull it out, and pee, shake your penis (to dislodge any drops of urine) and you're done. Women have to get a stall, pull down pants (or lift up skirt), pull down underwear, maybe pull down pantyhose and sit down. It just takes longer.

      I think some of the newer stadiums actually have women's bathrooms that are either bigger or more numerous. Which is a good thing for women.

      Trivia question. Can you guess why the Pentagon was built with twice as many bathrooms as might otherwise be necessary? (scroll down for the answer)

      Answer: The Pentagon was designed and built during World War II. In Virginia. So every floor and every wing had separate (but equal, I suppose) bathrooms for "Whites" and "Coloreds." Later (I don't know when), the Pentagon bathrooms were integrated. And they ended up with lots of extra bathrooms.

      Maybe they should play some football games there.
