Nashville Arena Becomes "The Sommet Center"

I guess anything is better than the "Gaylord."

Seriously this is the best news we could hear right now for the Preds staying put in Nashville.

Kudos to the Sommet group for stepping up to the plate...[It must have been my call to congratulate them for being the abbreviated Stanley Cup run sponsor this year]

Press Conference this afternoon.

FYI:

It is pronounced SOH-MAY (I guess it is French?), not SOME-METT...

great news

I kind of had a hunch something was brewing when Sommet sponsored the playoffs and they talked to the president of the company on air, but it's great to see it come to fruition.

Great news. I love how the Tennessean throws in the "talk about exercising out clause" part in the article. The only talk is from the Tennessean.

Woohoo, now we get to hear people with Southern accents butcher that. Along with "I'd like to order a quay-sooo-dill-a."

I wonder if the naming rights transaction price will be released during the presser or some time in the next few weeks

Is there anyone who can get down to the "Sommet Center" and get a picture of the new wording going up tomorrow above the entrance?

The quicker the hockey fans around here see the picture of the name change the sooner we get to move on from the "your building is gay" lame jokes

Though its suh-may, Sommet does mean Summit, so it can still be called the Summit.

I encourage everyone to send a letter or email to the Sommet Group thanking them for stepping up to the plate.
