Let's have a little fun. With the majority of sports stadiums, arenas and ballparks named with a corporate sponsor ... what would you want YOUR team's venue to be called if corporate names weren't allowed? Here are mine ... Utah Jazz - Salt Palace or Miller Sports Arena San Francisco Giants - McCovey Park or South Beach Park Pittsburgh Steelers - Rooney Field Chicago Blackhawks/Bulls - Chicago Stadium II or Madison Street Arena
So while browsing the interwebs this morning I discovered the news that the US Airways Center in Phoenix has been renamed the Talking Stick Resort Arena. Ugh. That got me thinking ... what are some HORRIBLE names you've come across for stadiums and arenas. I'm talking mainly here in the US and Canada. But, the big leagues, minor leagues, etc. Ones that stand out as DUMB off the top of my head are ... Talking Stick Resort Arena; PhoenixEnergySolutions Arena; Salt Lake CitySAP Center at San JoseO.co Coliseum; OaklandGlobe Life Park at ArlingtonMinute Maid Park; HoustonUniversity of Phoenix Stadium; GlendaleEverBank Field; JacksonvilleBefore the name change Jobing.com Arena was just as horrid as some of these. What else would you add to this list?
I have noticed that there are a few interesting features in some minor league parks (of course, some are a lot more noticeable than others). Some of the ones that I have heard about so far include the Quad Cities River Bandits having a corn field in left field near the bullpen, and the South Bend Silver Hawks using a former synagogue as their team souvenir store. What are some other ones that you know of?
