From the American Society for Microbiology and The Soap and Detergent Association, via Braves Blog, comes this tidbit about the dirty male fans at Turner Field:
Men really strike out when it comes to handwashing at sporting events, the study found. Only 57 per cent of the guys were observed washing their hands at Turner Field in Atlanta (the lowest figure at any of the locales). On the other hand, women hit a home run: 95 per cent were observed cleaning their hands at the same location.
Now the next time I’m watching TV and the fans in Atlanta start doing the tomahawk chop, I’ll know it’s not just racist, it’s unsanitary, too.
