Help Us Insultingly Nickname the New Marlins Stadium and Win Marlins Tickets!
We're a year from the new Marlins Stadium opening, but it's already one of the most hated edifices ever built in Miami. (Just ask Carlos Alvarez). So while we spend the next 40 years paying down the $2.4 billion in interest on this elephant we never wanted and didn't get to vote on, shouldn't we at least have a great, insulting nickname to hurl at it?
In this week's New Times we count down the six biggest lies about the new ballpark, and to assuage our anger we need your help to come up with the perfect slur for the park. Help us out and we'll hook you up!
Here's the deal: We've got two tickets for the Marlins series with the Tampa Bay Rays on May 20 and 21. They're good infield box seats.
And they're yours for the takin'! Just give us an insulting nickname for the worst stadium deal ever.
Cleveland has the Jake. Anaheim has The Big A. Miami will have ... the Chum Bucket? The Rusty Can Opener? The Carlos Alvarez Memorial Stadium?
Leave your best suggestions in the comments, or email them here.
We'll pick a winner by the end of the week, and we'll use it in every Marlins blog for years to come.
