    Texas Rangers Bid Farewell to the Ballpark With Patch in 2019

    I think part of it is that the average sports fan has changed. Atlanta's climate isnt significantly cooler than the North Texas climate yet no one is saying "why didnt the Braves build a roof on their new stadium?" The Rangers played outside in Arlington Stadium for 21 years before The Ballpark was built. Their attendance is in the top half of the league except for the years where the team is just straight garbage. Baseball season ticket sales are more about the corporate ticket packages than your average fan buying a block of seats to sit with family and friends. They probably will have an easier time selling corporate season ticket blocks even in bad seasons if the companies that was to treat clients out dont have to worry about weather or extreme heat causing tickets to go to waste.

    Because Louisiana owns the Superdome and pays the Saints $6 Million per year to play there. Before Hurricane Katrina hit, the Saints were flirting with both San Antonio and Southern Mississippi as ways to get Louisiana to build a new stadium. Then Katrina happened and the state and Saints agreed that a massive renovation would be just fine. The current lease ends after the 2025 season.

    That is the majority of the sights in the metroplex. Suburban office campuses and distribution/shipping warehouses

    The City of Arlington issued $500 Million in bonds to help finance the stadium. They plan to use an increased sales tax, hotel tax, and rental car tax to help pay it off. The Rangers were threatening to move to Fort Worth if Arlington didnt help pay up. Hopefully this one lasts 50 years, but I doubt it as there is always a newer and shinier suburb in the area willing to lure a team away.

    Safeco Field is now T-Mobile Park

    I have never heard anyone call the Dynamo's stadium Compass Stadium. I will say that rolls off the tongue better than BBVA. Despite that, I am surprised BBVA has kept the Compass part of the name for so long after acquiring Compass Bank

    Hosting it on a friday night doesn't help, but its done for tv reasons so it doesn't have to go up against any of the other P5 conference championship games

    The Houston Dynamo picked up a jersey sponsor in MD Anderson Cancer Center after going sponsorless last season. https://www.houstondynamo.com/post/2018/11/28/md-anderson-houston-dynamo-team-one-goal-end-cancer

    I'm probably jinxing, it but Notre Dame is 2 wins away from breaking the Nike monopoly on the playoff teams.

    Staples Canada changes logo

    Wow, I am ashamed to admit I never thought that the name could represent the other meaning for the word staple. I just thought they named an office supply store after literal staples and thought it was a stupid name this whole time.

    And many schools wore College Football 100th Anniversary helmet decals in 1969.

    Sleeve sponsors coming to MLS in 2020

    I dont think that was what was holding the Dynamo back from having a primary sponsor this year. I guess they'll be extra incentivized for getting one now.
