Urinal Troughs On The Hot Seat

The Dodger Stadium urinal trough is an integral part of the upper decks' architecture and experience (at least, for the MEN'S experience, that is). Heck, we even have a picture of it rotating in our banner photographs at the top.

Deadspin posted about that other lesser-known stadium that has urinal troughs, and how they are considering getting rid of the communal piss stations:

You never see troughs anymore, and it's probably because men like a modicum of privacy while urinating. That's fine. But I worry that future generations will never know the communal spirit of whipping it out alongside fellow drunks, nor the underrated thrill of watching your pee flow downstream to the trough's drain.

But besides that, this is history. You wouldn't cover up Michelangelo's David just because some prudes don't want penis in their peripheral view. And you wouldn't want to eliminate the timeless fun of the trough Slip 'n Slide.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone do that in the Dodger Stadium troughs. But then, unlike the Wrigley video above, Dodger Stadium isn't known for uncouth hooligans.

Poor bastard, I like to think he didn't see the bump in the middle and to just run through it.
