On Sunday night Cubs fans descended on the iconic Wrigley Field for the team's home opener.
About 35,000 baseball devotees turned out to watch the Cardinals take down the Cubs in a 3–0 loss.
It was a celebration of America's favorite pastime.
But it was also an absolute shitshow.
Amid renovations to the stadium, two bathrooms on the upper deck flooded, forcing thousands of fans to queue for up to 45 minutes to use the toilets.
"With 35,000 fans showing up in the ballpark, we were simply not prepared to handle guests during peak periods," Cubs spokesperson Julian Green told BuzzFeed News in a statement. "We have high standards for service and we missed the mark last night."
Lines were so bad that some fans resorted to peeing in cups.
WARNING: DO NOT SCROLL DOWN UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO SEE PEE CUPS.
YOU WERE WARNED:
"We want to apologize to our fans for the huge inconvenience," Green said.
"Moving forward we plan to supplement the existing restrooms with additional portable units and will continue to monitor wait times to ensure we can service our guests appropriately."
