Ah, yes. This used to be known as the Conductor’s Friend (railroad conductors would wear them). One was “featured” in the movie Semi Tough, in which Burt Reynolds wears one to survive a session at an Est-like seminar. Hilarious.
“Are you fed up with bringing bananas to work or school only to find them bruised and squashed? Our unique, patented device allows for the safe transport and storage of individual bananas letting you enjoy perfect bananas anytime, anywhere.”

I first heard about the Stadium Pal during an hilarious bit on This American Life by David Sedaris. I just don’t ever see myself using it, but to each their own…

Allows user to enjoy event
I dunno, man, I have the feeling that there’s something about WEARING A BAG OF MY OWN URINE that would have a dampening affect on my enjoyment level. That and knowing that when you get right down to it, you’re still just peeing your pants.
They had a problem with this?!? Bad QA department, BAD!!
I bet the Stadium Pal is great when you are taken hostage.
