What's the name of choice?

In the town I am from, one of the local arenas changed its name about 10 years ago. Yet still, I find myself calling it the old name. Am I on my own here, or do other hockey goers hang on to old names (ie: the Oiler's rink has changed names numerous times in their 25 year history)?

I called it the coliseum a couple years after it was named skyreach. I still refer to it as skyreach.

I'll say, "Go north on Wayne Gretzky Drive and turn left at skyreach."

Not used to rexall yet.

Call me stubborn, I guess, but I still say the Coliseum. It's probably a genetic defect, though. My dad still won't acknowledge Hawrelak Park.

My dad won't acknowledge Hawrelak Park either, but it's not because he's senile, he just believes Hawrelak was the biggest crook ever elected to city hall.

As for Rexall Place, I've taken to "The Drug Den"... on account of my sister-in-law's stories about AC/DC concerts.

That rink-lookin place?

Wish they'd have just called it Rexall Coliseum like they should have so I could go back to calling it the Coliseum.
