A Coliseum by any other state name

I’m all for giving our generic “Coliseum” a name, but, I hope that if Louisiana-Pacific does become the sponsor, they really name it something else. The Monday Night Football announcer telling us that they are coming at us, “Live, from the Louisiana-Pacific Coliseum, Home of the Tennessee Titans”, is just awkward.

But, then again, the “LouPa-seum” doesn’t do much for me, either.

    If you look at the company’s web site, they pretty much use “LP” instead of “Louisiana Pacific” for external consumption. So I’m guessing “LP Coliseum” — which seems strangely appropriate for a city that put out so many LPs in the heyday of vinyl …. :)

    It will probably end up with a nickname anyway (a la “The GEC”).

    I can envision it getting called: LouPac, Loupy (or loopy)

    Actually, being a music town being, the coliseum being called “LP” seems kinda appropriate though a little bit dated.
