Alltel Arena?

Posted By on Tue, Feb 24, 2009 at 1:48 PM

So now that Verizon has become the Godzilla of American Cellphonery, what's going to happen to Alltel Arena?  Will Verizon keep the sponsorship tie-in, will someone else step up and buy it or will it retain the Alltel name (which I'm sure it can't after the deal is up as the name is now property of Verizon, right?)

May I suggest:
Verizon Veranda: Verizon Dome (because we could all say, we're going to the VD tonight, which is funny.  Yes, I know it's not a real dome, work with me); Thunderdome - North Little Rock; Two Rocks Arena?  Argenta Arena.  NLR Hippodrone?  Bootzies Good Time Fun Shack?

Well, whatever, I'll be curious to see, that's a lot of money to spend in a recession that could be better put into, I don't know, reception inside a person's house...

  • Play it again, Buddy

    It is with a heavy heart and soul that I pass along the news that my dear friend and one of the most talented individuals I will ever have the pleasure of knowing has left us.  Chadwig "Buddy" Habig passed away last night and the world will be a little dimmer, a little sadder and a lot less musical.  I will miss him.  You're the tops, Buddy, play it again, and this time with a bumpy C!
