So here are some other ridiculous venue names we found across America.
1. The KFC Yum! Center - Louisville, KY
That's right, KFC didn't just want to name their sports arena in Kentucky after themselves; they had to add the word "Yum!" to show just how delicious their chicken is. However, in the process, they made their venue sound less like a basketball arena and more like a hospital for the clinically ill.
2. Glass Bowl Stadium - Toledo, OH
This stadium is home to the University of Toledo Rockets, a football team whose name you've no doubt already forgotten. And even though this outdoor gridiron is host to the weekly clashing of fat linebackers, I was surprised (and a little disappointed) to find out that it wasn't actually an aquatic version of the Thunderdome.
3. The Quicken Loans Arena - Cleveland, OH
The Quicken Loans Arena, home of the Cleveland Cavaliers, hosts many a basketball game. But simply by the name I would never have assumed basketball was played here. No, I would think this is a huge gladiatorial arena for bankers and lendees to sort out their differences... TO THE DEATH.
4. Petco Park - San Diego, CA
This is a dog park, right? Or is this a sports stadium? Because I honestly think we'd prefer it to just be an animal stadium. "Catch Rover, catch! Now run to the 22 yard line and make the first down! Good boy, Rover, good boy!"
|Don't be mad at Fiddlesticks. She had Tim Tebow throwing to her, so she never stood a chance of catching it.|
We laugh, but who knows, maybe one day some huge company will buy us out and you can look forward to reading sponsored blog posts from TAMPAX PRESENTS: A BUDWEISER SELECT 55 FOR THE MARTHA STEWART HOME COLLECTION SHOWER.
Cheers and stay classy, friends,
