The season hasn't even started yet, but O.Co Coliseum -- home of the wild and crazy Oakland Athletics -- is already experiencing flooding problems. Remember, this happened at least twice last season and involved sewage.
Saturday, the A's were set for an exhibition game against their Bay-area buddy Giants, but dealt with some rain. Note the picture:
And then, it was on.
It's happening already; with the rain today, there are overflowing toilets and flooding in coaches' room. #Athletics— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) March 29, 2014
One #Athletics player walks by and says "We didn't even make to Opening Day." Maintenance men here cleaning up the flooding.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) March 29, 2014
Back in Oakland? Sewage problems in clubhouse!! Yep. We are BACK BABAY!— Josh Reddick (@joshreddick16) March 29, 2014
Seriously, what an embarrassment. The season hasn't even started and there's a sewage problem in a stadium where one of 30 teams from a business that earns $8 billion in revenues plays. Find a freaking solution.
On the bright side, the A's are only signed with O.Co Coliseum through the 2015 season! (We'll leave out the fact that they don't have another stadium yet lined up for the years after that).
