Chester Stadium to be PPL Powered?

PPL

PPL power in Pennsylvania? Perhaps. Sports Business Journal's Tripp Mickle says a $20m, 10-year deal is on the table for naming rights to the Union's new stadium in under construction in Chester, PA. That's not a bad chunk of change for Philly to get chipped off with; hell, under the current salary cap of $2.3m that damn-near covers your entire payroll for players (DP's excluded of course).

Personally I hope this happens just so I have another stadium to refer to by it's initials like the HDC, PHP, RBA and BMO. What can I say, I love acronyms.

we'll have to see if Portland's ends up staying as PGE Park as well.

am i the only one that's noticed it's also text language for People Park?

anways, i guess i like it. it's not a very original idea, but at least no one else in the world has PPL Park (from what i know).

Oh God not this again. When will PA/NJ/NY ever get over their love of geographical nitpicking?
