The A’s had another sewage backup at the Coliseum on Tuesday

You know how some workplaces have a sign posted that keeps track of how many days it’s been since the last accident? The A’s should have one that keeps track of the amount of days since their last sewage backup.

That pesky Coliseum plumbing was up to its usual tricks Tuesday night during the A’s game with the Angels when the toilet in the A’s dugout clogged and ran a whole mess of [redacted to preserve your lunch] all over the dugout floor. From John Shea:

Another Coliseum sewage problem began in the sixth inning, this one near the bathroom in the A’s dugout, and stadium employees used mops and towels to clean up the mess. At one point, bench coach Chip Hale crawled along the dugout bench to fetch the lineup cards and his paperwork.

“Another o.co Coliseum flub. That was fun,” reliever Jerry Blevins said. “Pretty good coating on the dugout floor.”

From USA Today:

“There’s no carpet down there (in the dugout), so it’s a little bit better, but it’s still pretty gross,” A’s infielder Jed Lowrie said in comparing the two situations. “It’s kind of repulsive, honestly.”

And Lew Wolff wonders why people don’t want to visit this dump. Add “for fear of being drowned by raw sewage” to the list.

Still no word on what or who clogged the toilet. Maybe look for the A’s player who’s avoiding eye contact with everybody.

Oh, and this might need to be updated:
