End of an Era

Though I'm sure few will mourn it's passing.

The Brothers Maloof have reached a new arena-naming rights agreement with Power Balance, and on March 1 Arco Arena will be no more.

I don't have proof of this at my immediate disposal, but I think it's possible that Arco Arena was the first stadium or arena in the country to be named after a corporation. It was hardly a name that generated fondness in the hearts of fans, but it did have a bit of a ring to it - a ring that "Power Balance Pavilion" lacks.

Not that anyone really cares.
