Yesterday, the Orlando Magic hosted the Drano Royal Flush at their new arena, the Amway Center, in order to test the new toilets at the building. Here's more on the event from the Magic's press release:

The new Amway Center in downtown Orlando met another milestone as the traditional "Royal Flush" was held September 8, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at the construction site. The purpose of the Drano "Royal Flush" event was to observe sanitary sewer flows, water consumption and pressure in and around the arena. Approximately 443 toilets were flushed simultaneously; there are 18 men’s and 19 women’s restrooms in the new Amway Center, compared to just four of each in the old facility.

Tim Povtak of NBA FanHouse has more on the event here, including this quote from Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy:

"I don't think so," Van Gundy quipped when asked if he was part of the promotion. "But a lot of people here still think I'm a piece of crap."
