Taking Back the Ballparks - Angels voting thread, the Sequel

The non-Angels fans have spoken. The new name for the ballpark in Anaheim begins with team founder Gene Autry. But we’re going to need to stick something at the end of that. Choose whatever appendage you want, Field, Park, Stadium, Grounds, something other or the suggestion by villageidiom, who championed the Singing Cowboy’s case so passionately to begin with, Arena.

Whatever the case, it’s nice to know that it’s longstanding nickname will still be just as appropriate.

I figure I'll leave this open for about three days. No need to go beyond that.

   2. QLE Posted: February 28, 2018 at 12:36 AM (#5631494)
Arena.
   3. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: February 28, 2018 at 02:53 AM (#5631497)
Since I don't like how the voting turned out, I'll suggest: Gene Autry's Big A.

I almost changed my vote to Autry just to avoid The Big A winning.

One of the things this project has done for me is to show that we are apparently no better at naming stadiums than the corporate bigwigs.

My vote is Stadium.

That Silver Haired Daddytorium Of Mine

In a vine-covered shack in the mountains,
bravely fighting the battle of time
is a dear one who's weathered life's sorrows,
tis that silver-haired daddy of mine.

If I could recall all the heartaches,
dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear,
if I could erase those lines from your face
and bring back the gold to your hair.

If God would but grant me the power
just to turn back the pages of time,
I'd give all I own if I could but atone
to that silver-haired daddy of mine.

Oh, I know it's too late, dear old Daddy
to repay all those sorrows and cares,
though dear Mother is waiting in heaven
just to comfort and solace you there.

If I could recall all the heartaches,
dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear,
if I could erase those lines from your face
and bring back the gold to your hair,

if God would but grant me the power
just to turn back the pages of time,
I'd give all I own if I could but atone
to that silver-haired daddy of mine.

I'd give all I own if I could but atone
to that silver-haired daddy of mine.

Autry/Long


They don't write 'em like that anymore! No really, they don't.

I don't have any strong opinion. So I'll join on the "Field" pile-on so we can move on.
