ESPN: Talk about streaming media: The Philadelphia Phillies‘ top minor league affiliate is set to debut what it calls a “urinal gaming system” at its ballpark in Allentown. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs tapped a British company to install the system in men’s restrooms at Coca-Cola Park.
It consists of a video display mounted above each urinal. When a fan approaches, the video console will sense his presence and switch into gaming mode. The guy aims left or right to control the play on the screen.
I’m imagining one of those carnival games where you shoot water guns at a target and it pushes your horse along the racetrack. If you miss the target your horse stops. The person who gets the most water on the target has the fastest horse and wins the race. That’s how I’m imaging this goes. Or maybe it would be something like frogger. Or an accelerated version of snake. Either way, it’s a great way to piss all over your own pants because you’re busy looking at a TV screen stead of down at the urinal. When you’re sober and alert at 1pm that wouldn’t be a problem. But if I’m at a minor league baseball game, which requires several beers in order to be entertaining, it might not be so easy, especially given my extraordinarily small penis size. Doesn’t always want to come all the way through the fly.
