Re: Spnsored satium names that make sense

I'm surprised that Starbucks hasn't tried to get in on this.

Morpheus, are you simply angry that the Sox park is named anything other than (new) Comiskey Park? (I was at a Royals/Sox game a few months ago and I heard a lot of the fans call it Comiskey)

Me, I like Citi Field. I mean I love the park itself, of course. But the name itself just seems kind of, well, neat. Almost like you're saying "City field". (And before anyone else asks - no, Citigroup bloody well did NOT use bailout funds to pay for the naming rights. )
