Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: Rupp Arena Naming Rights Edition

The Lexington Center will not sell naming rights to Rupp Arena. Thank goodness.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, and welcome to the Tuesday Quickies.

The big news of the morning is that the Lexington Center, the folks that own Rupp Arena, will not be selling the naming rights to Rupp. They are considering selling naming rights for the entire Lexington Center complex, however.

I am cautiously optimistic and pleased that we won’t have to deal with something like "Lexmark Rupp Arena" or "Ashland Oil Rupp Arena." Of course, minds can change when the kind of money we are talking about is involved. Stay tuned (Hat tip: Kentucky Sports Radio.)

For some reason, this struck me as hilarious.
