Funny stadium names?

Recommended Posts

Omaha recently sold the naming rights of the downtown arena (formerly named CenturyLink Center) to CHI Health, meaning it's now the CHI Health Center. Which sounds like a hospital.

I've always found Central Michigan's football stadium Kelly/Shorts Stadium pretty humorous. It's even funnier in this era of corporate naming rights since now it sounds like it's named after a second rate clothing brand.

Not even just that; the stadium itself looks funny.

 

It's like they didn't finish construction and just let the entrance area look incomplete.

The rear sideline looks like someone made a cut with the polygonal lasso and photoshopped the stadium into another picture.

Yeah. I t was landlocked by its location and the derby downs. The field was always terrible as well. Glad to see it go as a Kent State fan, but I hate seeing stadiums just falling apart.

When Ralston Purina owned the St. Louis Arena, it was the Checkerdome

It was named the Checkerdome due to Purina's corporate logo. We just called it the Arena, and it was a dump😕
