Will the AZ Cardinals play in Pink Taco Stadium?: "There is zero chance of this happening," said Mark Dalton, director of media relations for the Cardinals. "We are in serious and legitimate naming rights discussion with several companies, this is not one of them."

When the news that Joe Robbie Stadium was to be renamed first leaked, the news was reported as 'Fruit of the Loom in contact with Dolphins to buy naming rights.' Thankfully it was for Fruit's Pro Player line, but for about 12 hours we were all worried. (Not that Pro Player was any less blasphemous to Joe's memory, but hey...)

Enron, Gillette, Bank One, Chase, Fleet Bank are/were all fine, and Pink Taco is not? What a bunch of stiffs.

I love the name. It does say a lot about what I think of Cardinal players in general, so it fits.

What? Was Mississippi Black Snake taken?

What about the Trojan Condom Dome, since the grass inside has a layer of protection over it

I'll be the first one to admit that I like to joke around, but this is a little over the top. Probably because I have kids and I try (stress try) to set a good example. Would you really want to take your kids to the Pink Taco Stadium? Why not call it Little Man in the Canoe Coliseum? Call me a prude if you want...

Prude.....lol

Well, you gotta admit, after this year's saviour (Edgerrin James) averaging around 0.1 yards per carry this preseason, the O-line seems to be playing like a bunch of P**sies, so why NOT the Pink Taco stadium?

If I were rich (which I'm not) I'd buy the naming rights to Cleveland Browns Stadium and rename it Cleveland Steamer Stadium. Probably why I'm not rich.

That's a good idea. I've always harboured a strange fantasy of donating a shitload of money to a hospital, but only if they name the new wing "Taylor's House of Really Sick People." Pink Taco stadium sounds depressing to me. That's just because I broke up on Saturday. (Wait, is this Grouphug.us?) It sounds like everyone is getting laid but me. My gawd, I'm a mopey fucker.

Anouncer: Here we are at the Pink Taco stadium, Camel Toe drops back, fires a Clam Shot down the field, oh oh oh yes the Mopey Fucker catches it....touchdown!! Man look at him doin' the Tube Snake Boogie dance in the endzone. Wow what a play.

Folkways that was too damn funny. What would they do with the stadium once a month for seven days?

What would they do with the stadium once a month for seven days? Sigh, bear-baiting I suppose, assuming something could ever happen once a month for seven days.

what are these people even thinking about offering up this name. Publicity, which they're getting. Also, silly, overreactive outrage, which they're getting...from folks like you.

posted by The_Black_Hand at 06:53 PM on August 22

Hey, maybe they could call the endzones the G spots, oh wait, they would never score because most men could'nt find that place anyways

Now if this was a baseball stadium it might make more sense. First you have to get to first base, then gently get to second, make the move for third base, then comes the big challenge, home base. The Pink Taco!
