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.

The bathroom situation at #wrigleyfield is NOT OK.. #construction (yes those are all lines for men's and women's)

"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."

This is out of control #WrigleyField no bathrooms @Cubs

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:

@Cubs this is how bad the bathroom situation is @ Wrigley....

"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."
