I don't know. Where were you? :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

You were supposed to tell me! I thought you mods were Big Brother tracking every raised eyebrow. ;-)

Surely the Giants fans in the Cafe are outraged at such a horribly blunt and unattractive name for their park? I hate the Giants and I'm upset about this.

Surely this is the sign of the Giants' downfall....

Lol. :-D

There was a thread about it in the Talk forum. We even gave Eftda a hard time about the new name. It was a couple of months ago though.

Personally, I like the sound of "Pac Bell" a whole lot better than "SBC".

This ballpark desperately needs a nickname, something that will stick for generations, long after a bank has swallowed the airline that bought the television network that devoured the phone company that underwent six name changes, creating a perpetual identity crisis for the little stadium by the bay.


Couldn't have said it better myself..... :-)

I hate ball parks being named after companies..... :-P ...I think they should name them after the team or the city...or atleast something related to the purpose of the stadium...but rights saling..... :-P

Ah, no wonder I didn't know. I wasn't frequenting the Cafe until the end of Nov., thus, I wasn't up-to-date on the latest news.

Thanks, eftda. ;-D
