Columbus Arena

McConnell Arena.

Because arenas named after corporations are so boring.

Maybe Nationwide can get JPMac to pay for the naming rights.

That place is a dump. The fans are terrible. Most overrated sports venue of all time.

Agreed. It was also named after the then team owner William Wrigley Jr., not the company.

Another possibility is Local Arena, as a play on Nationwide--and for excellent conversation possibilities:

"Blue Jackets? Where do they play?"

"Local Arena."

"Sweet. My buddy plays there. Oh look, football's on."

P.S. My personal favorite has been Slumpbuster Arena, just for the likelihood of theme nights.

Been trying to make a "Prison of..." like the Browns' fan's "Factory of Sadness" (mkes sadness) but the things held prisoner are positive things (i.e. Prison of Hope) which just doesn't sound right. Prison of Hopelessness doesn't sound right either.

The prison of no escape?

Having typed that, it reminds me of the 'inescapable' Azkaban prison for those of you that have read Harry Potter. In describing the prison, one of the characters says:

"They don't need walls and water to keep the prisoners in, not when they're trapped inside their own heads, incapable of a single cheerful thought. Most go mad within weeks."

Well, that would be fitting for a venue built on a prison site.

If Columbus billionare moguls would stop building private expressways and shopping malls with substantial public influence and put that influence into the pro hockey infrastructure instead-the Arena would be named the “Wexner Center”...
