SNL's "Weekend Update" finds fodder in Barclays Center pee story (and how about some porta-potties?)
In fact, Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" last night found humor in the issue, just after the 34-minute mark.
Anchor Seth Meyers declared, "Residents of Brooklyn who live near the new Barclays Center are complaining that a large number of people urinating on the streets and behind buildings after Brooklyn Nets games--and also for the last 200 years."
Hee-hee, those complaining Brooklynites. The thing is, the state overrode zoning to place an arena closer to residences than city law permits. So the margin for error--even when the number of arena patrons urinating is far smaller than some news reports suggest--is small.
Perhaps a few porta-potties--a rather paltry investment, overall--could offer relief to Barclays Center patrons, protect neighbors bearing the brunt of arena impacts, and stem the bad press.
