If Citi bails, what do the Mets name their ballpark?

3 Feb

Not great news for the seventeen Mets fans left on planet Earth. Seems as if Citigroup may be trying to weasel out of its deal with the “other” New York baseball team. That would leave an issue seeing as the name of the ballpark is supposed to be Citi Field.

That got us thinking about what the name would be if Citi decides to — no pun intended – bailout of the deal. 

Possible Names:

  • Bankrupt Field
  • Advertisers Wanted Park
  • Please Buy Tix Stadium
  • Yes, the Mets Still Have a Team SportsPlex

Mystery team opening new mystery stadium

For those of you who simply cannot wait any longer, we’ll kill the suspense and let you in on what the logo is all about: It’s a patch to commemorate the opening of Citi Field. Can you believe it? Who thought this was a good idea? For starters, it doesn’t even have the team name on it, not to mention the stadium name. A photo or rendering of the stadium wouldn’t hurt either.

At least the Domino’s logo (which the Mets’ logo was clearly patterned after) shows an actual domino. That’s marketing 101, by the way:

Finally, for those of you wondering how a good commemorative patch should look, just take a peek across town:
