Sometimes you just have to laugh. There is a professional basketball team in the United States called the Golden State Warriors. And anything with the name ‘golden’, on the balance of probabilities, would refer to San Francisco, home of that golden piece of architecture. The Golden Gate Bridge.
You may be interested to know that another piece of architecture is being planned for San Francisco that is anything but gold, although some of these structures have been made of gold. And it’s a structure that has a lot to do with the Golden State Warriors basketball team.
You will see that architectural drawings have been posted showing the new basketball stadium for this proud team. But somehow, somewhere, someone seriously flawed in their design. The new stadium is shaped like a washbasin. Yes, a bathroom. Not everything, just something. I mean the seat and the lid. Someone else with a sense of humor suggested that the 18,000-seat arena would be more suitable for another basketball team called the Sacramento Kings because it looks like a throne.
The release of the design caused social media to crash as expected.
Even two of the star players of the Golden State Warriors participated in the act. Guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are known as the Splash Brothers due to their three-point shooting ability. They tweeted: What about the Warriors arena layout? Sure, it looks like a toilet bowl, but they have the Splash Brothers. Ha ha.
Now you will notice that I have avoided referencing that I was successful, either this is a bunch of crap or the design needs to be canned. Those are clichés for people without imagination.
The Warriors leadership was quick to assure everyone that the drawings would not be the final product. A team spokesperson said the club was confident that when the design is further refined and truly comes together, people will not only see what the Golden State Warriors are trying to achieve, but they will also see a more beautiful rendering. They would say that it is not. Loosely translated what you are saying is that we have killed the architects and told them that they need to find something much better in the design department rather than a stadium that looks like a toilet.
Frankly, I don’t buy any of this. I mean, do these people have no eyes? You would have to be legally blind not to see what the proposed new stadium design looks like at the very moment you saw the drawing. It is shaped like a toilet. End of story. I mean, you wouldn’t release the designs for public comment just to get ridiculed, right? I guess the really disturbing aspect of this is the fact that it was only after people started pointing out how blindingly obvious the Golden State Warriors management decided to respond the way they did by trying to put a positive spin on it. Of course, “try” is the keyword.
But if you thought this was too funny for words, think about the sports authorities in Qatar in the Middle East. They are building the Al-Wakrah Sports Stadium for the 2022 Soccer World Cup. It looks like a giant vagina.
