The Nashville Predators Int'l Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union 429 Arena? It's not out of the question.


While we're waiting an extra hour to get the puck sliding when our Preds take on the Mile-High City Snowfall, we've been given news of yet another unexpected financial snafu: The Sommet Group hasn't been paying up for the arena naming rights and a suit is being filed.  The Sommet Group will continue to have rights until they are tried and lose.  What does this mean for the fans?  A guessing game, of course!  What will our 2nd home be called next?  Click here is a list of the present-day businesses that support the team.

What else can we do with our spare time whilst we wait for the game and this list of possibilities? Come up with slogans for our team just in case these "What If" scenarios become a reality!

Bradshaw Collision Center:  Get Smashed.
JD's British Cars Arena:  Where Central Division Rivals Can Sod Off.
CINTAS Center:  Cleaning Soiled Hockey Gear Since 1998.
Geriatrix Consulting Center:  Where Chelios Was Consulted Ages Ago.
Capitol Wholesale Fence Co. Arena:  Keeps Out Goals Against.
Smith, Seckman, Reid, Inc. Arena: Arnott, Dumont, Sullivan, Wow!
Team Construction Center:  We Do It Well.
Premier Door Arena: Where Wings Fans' Asses Are Hit On The Way Out.
Dirt Factory Arena (I just wanted to type this one out, really.)
Home Team Arena:  It Just Makes Sense. (or Home Team Arena: Really.)
Terminix Center:  Keeping the Pests Out
RazorGator Interactive Arena:  ExtremeAwesome Hockiness, Brah!(!!)
SESAC Center: What? You Already Called It "Gaylord".
Peoples State Bank Of Commerce Center: Home of the Peoples Team Of Hockey - the Nashville Predators
Pinnacle Center:  If We Buy The Naming Rights, Will You Forgive The Signs We Just Put On Our Tower?
Pillsbury Center:  Western Conference Rivals...YOU SUCK! Heeheeheeeee!
Pepsi Cola Arena (just so when we're finally put in the Eastern Conference, and Coke buys the Thrashers' naming rights...we can have an all-out...though it'd rock more as Royal Crown Arena)
Allied Waste Arena:  Garbage Goals All Night
Dixie Medical Center:  No Yanks Allowed
Southern Louisiana Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center: We Fixed Legwand, We Can Fix You
Moo-TV Arena:  Opponent Tipping - We're Professionals
Southern Ice Arena Arena: The Second Arena Is Yours

The list can go on and on, but you get the picture. Why don't you join in the fun and comment some more?  These were all off the top of my head, so I'm sure you can do much better.  I just got home from driving from Atlanta in Thanksgiving traffic...took me 6 hours instead of 3 and a half...I'm braindead, I hate cars at the moment and I just ate some pizza I brought home from a delicious place in Little 5 called Savage Pizza (I recommend it).

More details will surely come out soon regarding this silliness, but until then, let's create some of our own.

And, just so the businesses know, thank you so much for supporting the team in ways we private individuals can't afford.  This post is in jest, and is meant to be taken lightly.  If you can't take puns or farcical nature without a grain of salt, you most likely aren't reading this blog anyway, but just in case...

'Til then!
