Pink Taco Stadium

Oh, what a great name for a stadium. Sadly, it's very misleading.

The owners of Scottsdale's Pink Taco restaurant have serious designs on being the Arizona Cardinals' naming rights partner for the team's new stadium.

The Cardinals, on the other hand, are about as interested in "Pink Taco Stadium" as they are Sun Devil Stadium. According to the team, the Cardinals won't ever be playing in either.

"We're in serious discussions with companies about naming rights, and Pink Taco is not one of them," Cardinals spokesman Mark Dalton said Monday afternoon. "There's no doubt in our minds that this is a publicity stunt."

But at a Monday afternoon press conference, Pink Taco president Harry Morton sounded serious about making a deal happen. "We won't take no for an answer," he said.

All determination (and cash) aside, the Cardinals can choose whomever they want as a naming rights partner, and some believe there's no real hurry to rush into a deal.

Even so, Morton met with a Cardinals corporate sales representative last week to discuss a deal. He said there's a 10-year, $30 million deal on the table.

"A $30 million PR stunt would be pretty expensive," Morton said. "We are serious about this."

Morton said Monday that there is another meeting scheduled with Cardinals officials for this week, but Dalton said no such meeting is arranged.

While the Cardinals view the whole thing as a publicity stunt, the fact remains that Pink Taco seems to have the financial resources and genuine desire to make a splash with the Cardinals and the NFL.

Harry Morton's father, Peter, founded the Hard Rock Cafe 35 years ago but sold it off last month for more than $700 million. Harry Morton had a $5 million check on hand at the press conference Monday that he is all-too willing to offer the Cardinals as part of the $30 million deal.

Could be worse, the Church of Scientology could put up the money and call it "Silent Birth Stadium".

They do have that kind of money to kick around, and they already sposor a NASCAR team...not that I think it would happen.

Consult your physician if it doesn't crash within 36 hours.

Right now only Pink Taco has had an offer and the Cardinals basically laughed it off the table. I have heard companies such as Swift Transportations, Toyota and even Earnheardt(A local dealership) being interested in buying the naming rights. But right now the Pink Taco Restaurant are the only ones that have offered anything serious to the Cardinals.

That'd be funny only because of all the idiots thinking it's spelled the same way as the famous (dead) NASCAR driver and saying stuff like:

"Well, they were Earnheardt and the [Other Team] was the turn 4 wall! hahahaha!!111"

For something like that to fly they need to seriously raise that offer.  $3 million a year isn't going to get it done.

And in Pink Taco's case, maybe if they added a zero before the first comma ($300 million over 10 years), the Cardinals would listen.  Until then, its a publicity stunt.

If I was paying $300 million over ten years, it better have ownership connected to the deal.

I would love to see Viagra or Cialas or somekind of ed drug to have their name on the stadium. That would be funny.

Pink Taco? This place sounds weird. Whoever heard of a pink taco.

I hope you're not serious. I shouldn't have to explain this to you. I guess at some point, every boy needs to have this explained to him as he becomes a man. So here goes, for you and for everyone who's never been lucky enough to enjoy a Pink Taco.

*rolls up sleeves*

Wellllllllll... A "Pink Taco" is any one of a chain of 3 restaurants located in Scottsdale, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The chain is owned by the same family who operates the Hard Rock Cafe resturants around the world. Their menu consists of very good Mexican fare, "served with attitude". Nothing more, nothing less.

And there are absolutely no suggestive double entendres that would relate or associate the name "pink taco" to anything else on this planet, in any way, shape or form, so don't worry about letting your mind wander into the gutter. No, not even for a second... I mean, a "pink taco". Can you imagine such a thing that would be pink, and take the shape of a taco shell, which holds spicy meats bathed in various sauces? Why do people always look for hidden meanings that aren't there in the first place?

I am dying over here after reading that. :P

I can't wait to see Pink Taco Stadium up close, in person. I mean, I can picture maybe one or two - but a whole stadium? Damn.
