The ballpark formerly not known well as Ameriquest ...

Will now be called Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

The original name was the Ballpark in Arlington. Then Ameriquest Field in Arlington. And now Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

From the AP story

The parent company of the subprime lender, ACC Capital Holdings Corp., announced last week that it was slashing its work force for the second time in less than a year. The company cited the "very challenging nonprime market" for the cuts.

There will be a quiz later.

Much later.

Much, much later.

Say one thing for MLB, if the PGA Tour was in charge, they'd cancel the Rangers season.

Reliant Stadium, American Airlines Arena, and Toyota Center are the three Texas sport venues that have their original corporate names.

Texas Stadium will house the Cowboys through the 2008 season, their new stadium is yet unnamed.

I would say that of the three remaining, Reliant would be the most endanger since they have been subject of federal prosecution, of course you never know about the airline business. Toyota is the safest name of the three.

Does it beat out PacBell/SBC/AT&T for number of different names for a ballpark in the past few years?

Name at least two of the names of the stadiums/arenas where these teams play their games. Note, for teams that have moved in their history, only the stadium where they currently play. (I am not looking for The Polo Grounds if I asked about the Giants)

1. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
2. Oakland A's
3. San Diego Chargers
4. St. Louis Rams
5. Arizona Diamondbacks
6. Phoenix Suns
7. Orlando Magic

The Chargers have played in San Diego Stadium, Jack Murphy Stadium, and now Qualcomm Stadium.

The Rams started out at the TWA Dome, then the Trans World Dome (I think) and now the Edward Jones Dome.

How many NBA arenas does American Airlines have? All of them?

Corporate-sponsored venue names are dead to me.

The Dodgers open at Milwaukee. I will safely assume the game will be played at the baseball stadium, not the basketball arena.

The basketball arena in Milwaukee is not named after a corporation. The Bradley Center is named for the family that bankrolled it.

Miller Field is one giant ad for beer.

I think Miller might make more beer at its plant in Industry, CA than it does in Milwaukee.

Greg Maddux should dribble Miller Beer on the legs of rookies in the shower.
