Renaming Citi Field

Stadium-implosionTwo congressman are demanding that Citibank withdraw their 20-year naming rights for the Mets new Stadium scheduled to open this April. 

But change the name to what? 

The Hernia mole faxed the following proposed alternates to Mets longtime public relations guru Jay Horwitz:

– City Field
– Sitty Field
– Shitty Field (come on, we had to)
– Sein Field
– Sally Field
– Hello My Name is Field
– Not Shea Stadium
– Field Of Queens
– The Knew Shea Stadium
– Yankee Stadium
– Ponzi Park
– Fraud Field
– At Least We Were Never Called Enron Field
– El Campo
– Sal & Vinny's House
– Mr. Met's Sex Dungeon
– The House That Rusty Staub Ate
– Rocker's Seven Train Shit Palace
– Exclusively in SAP Stadium
– Inevitable Horrible Plane Crash Field
Firecracker Field
– Everything Blows Except 1986 Field
– Fuck Madoff Memorial Field
– The New Stadium Next to The Spot Where Shea Stadium Was

    #2 Field…

    …it works on multiple different levels – a synonym for shit, Shea Stadium part deux, their division standing in October, the rank of their popularity amongst MLB teams in NY, where Marlins and Braves players go to end their careers…

    The Wilpons should really take the high road and forget a corporate sponsor.

    “Obama Memorial Park” has a real nice ring to it. At least New Yorkers can say they’re apart of history.
