IronPigs Bring Watersports to Men’s Room Urinals

Kyle Scott - March 26, 2013

Yo, seriously, step the fuck off, Reading Fightins GM Scott Hunsicker— there’s a new zany promotion sheriff in town, and this one wants you to piss excellence. Or have excellent pisses. Something like that.

Cliff Lee would be great at this:

Coca-Cola Park will be the first sports venue in the world to feature a brand new revolutionary "Urinal Gaming System", allowing fans to interact with the world's only truly hands-free urinal game controller, when the Lehigh Valley IronPigs open their 2013 season this April.  The p-controlled video game systems will be featured within all men's restrooms at Coca-Cola Park and are exclusively presented by Lehigh Valley Health Network.



"These games are sure to make a huge splash," exclaimed IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes. "Our fans are always looking for the next big thing and these 'X-Stream games' are another example of our commitment to providing an unparalleled entertainment experience in all aspects of Coca-Cola Park, including our restrooms."


I’m smiling. If you could see me right now, I’m actually smiling.

When a user approaches the urinal, the video console flips into gaming mode, using patented technology that detects both his presence and stream.  






Algorithms then allow the user to engage with the screen by aiming in different directions to test their agility and knowledge.  


Cocksmithing, if you will.

The games are 100% intuitive and custom-built to provide a unique user interface along with an easy and seamless experience.  The Urinal Gaming System was created and developed by United Kingdom-based Captive Media.  For more information on Captive Media, or to see a video of the p-controlled video games, visit

Bernie Parent just keeps living the life. Last night, he was seated with WAYNE GRETZKY at the Flyers-Maple Leafs game. Pictures via reader Mike, who is in the Flyers jersey, who will almost certainly tell me what the two legends talked about???

Michael Vick’s New Video Game Looks Like it Will Mirror Real Life

Kyle Scott - February 18, 2013

By renegotiating a one-year contract with the Eagles, Michael Vick has bought himself another year of relevancy. 

So, why not capitalize?

Vick has used his celebrity (and his Twitter) to promote his t-shirt line, muscle supplements, wristbands, books and other things. And now, it looks Team Vick, a hashtagish moniker for all things Michael (but really just something that bought his brother a big house), will have a new product to promote– a video game.*

Here’s a screenshot, tweeted by the very silly Marcus Vick, for an apparently soon-to-be-released game (app?):

It's not hard to liken Coach Cline to, say, Chip Kelly, and you get the sense that the game will follow the trials of an aging, oft-maligned quarterback desperate to impress his new coach, who, ironically, probably won’t be all that impressed by an impressive lineup of branded products. So consider me not impressed. Mckayla, too.

*These are the sorts of posts you get on government holidays. Speaking of Holidays– Jrue was in the All-Star Game last night, and thus concludes our coverage of that.

Cliff Lee and His Kids Pledge Allegiance to the National League All-Star Team [sic]

Kyle Scott - July 3, 2012

I can’t tell you how much it injures my soul to watch this MLB Fan Cave-staged promo video of an increasingly maligned Cliff Lee (and his cute kids) awkwardly pledging his allegiance to the All-Star team he’s not on. But hey, at least Jackson is optimistic about the Phillies’ chances: “Because my dad likes home field advantage.”

Let’s start with a win, little guy.
