I remember going to Scotlad games as a boy on the North Terrace.
One of my funniest memories was of a guy who, after presumably a
few too many, decided not to bother goi ng down to what , at that
time, resembled toilets ! He just whipped it out and went where
he was standing. I clearly remember the space that opened up around
him - there must have been a 20 foot empty circle around this guy
who's only concern was not pissing on his unopened bevvy !! That
night it wasnt just the national team that stunk.
