AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants was one of the best experiences reported by the team of UFE (Urine Feces Everywhere). Scoring 23 on a scale from 1-30 is no easy feat for any establishment. Playing the devil’s advocate when researching actual and potential areas of contamination has made the team quite skeptical. They were pleased to note that the San Francisco Giants fans scored 90% higher than all of the other MLB parks in hand washing! The large number of people washing their hands at AT&T Park may be attributed to the fact that their restrooms are filthy and archaic!
I hope that the hand washing troughs in the AT&T Park washrooms are eco-friendly or economically helpful as they are tremendous spreaders of urine and feces. That’s right people; the same rules apply to the urine troughs in the men’s restroom that apply to sink troughs in the women’s restroom. There is “the aerosol effect”, which is the cloud of tiny droplets that travel far outside a toilet when it is flushed, up to 6-8 feet. A sink trough has more of a splash effect that cannot travel as far but when you are washing your hands at a trough basin with other people around who are washing their hands, you are closer to them than if you were at an individual basin. Whatever is on your hands is going to travel to your clothes, the person next to you, or anything within the proximity of the multiple faucets in the trough basin.
AT&T Park was built in 2000 to mimic the old time feel of Fenway Park and Wrigley Field with all of the amenities of the modern ballparks of today. AT&T Park should have sent their sink troughs to the men’s restrooms in Wrigley Field where they were put in almost 100 years ago.
