Corporate ballpark #4,316

Speaking of my beloved Sox, it looks likely that they will rename their home field prior to opening day. Gone will be Comiskey Park (II), in its place will stand...

...US Cellular Ballpark.

Sigh. All games aside, all lames aside, this doesn't make much of a practical difference in my life; I never called it Comiskey Park (being as the Old Roman, Charlie Comiskey, was an evil, cheap, cruel, racist motherfucker), and I'll never call it US Cellular Ballpark. White Sox Park it has been, and White Sox Park it shall remain.

Anyway, could have been worse. There was serious talk of naming it Yahoo! Field. I have a feeling enough people call it that already.
