    Boise State basketball plays at Taco Bell Arena. I mean, that will be fine in the future when all restaurants are Taco Bell, but right now it's a little tacky. Not as bad as Jenny Craig pavilion though...

    I think the Arizona Cardinals playing in the University of Phoenix Stadium is kind of weird. To the uninformed, they could hear that they used to play in (ASU) Sun Devil Stadium, and then moved to U of Phoenix Stadium. Well, they're a **** NFL team - why can't they get their own stadium?

    The one that I really like is where the San Jose Sharks play - the HP Pavilion. Great play on their products as one of their computers is the Pavilion, and pavilion is another name for an arena.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    The new stadium in Phoenix was very close to being named Pink Taco stadium. I think the local's refuesed it.

    Dick's Sporting Goods Park (MLS’s Colorado Rapids) — This one should be obvious. Rapids fans will, starting next year, be able to cheer on their team at The Dick.

    The Cavs play at the Quickenloans Arena. Doesn't really roll off the tongue...

    Anyone else get annoyed when people say we play at "The" Hilton? It's just Hilton. I don't have any problem with playing at "The" Jack in football, but "The" Hilton just sounds off to me.
