Fark.com Duke Sucks Center

Damn this would have been cool:

Denver Post:

Drew Curtis of the news-and-entertainment website Fark.com says he
submitted a winning bid of $2,550 for FleetCenter naming rights on
Feb. 28.

Curtis is asking Fark.com readers for ideas on what to name the arena;
his initial proposal of "Fark.com Duke Sucks Center" was rejected.
Among the ideas submitted so far: Fark.com Abe Vigoda Memorial Center,
the Farkatorium and the Boston Garden.

The rotating, day-to-day naming opportunity is being offered through
the eBay online auction site while Delaware North seeks a long-term
naming rights deal to replace the FleetCenter name.

Here's the Fark.com thread about it.


One post from the thread:

Here's why we did it:

1) it's a charity auction. Fark raises money for charity all year long
2) it's publicity, not just on the arena but in regular media
3) it's funny
4) Duke Sucks
