Worst Stadium Name Since Enron Field

The erstwhile Candlestick Park in San Francisco, site of among other events the final Beatles concert, has been rechristened Monster Park.
Not only is it a ridiculous name thats more appropriate for a theme park aimed at 1o-year-olds than the home of an NFL team, but as Eric points out, anyone hearing the name will likely think Monster.com, when in fact the Monster in question is a local electronics company that has nothing to do with the job-search site.
Adding insult to insult, the 49ers got the comically low sum of $6 million for the rights. Ive heard of such deals being for eight or even nine figures.

    Perhaps the Monster company should think about changing its name, too.
    Everyone and their uncle WILL think Monster.com.
    At least at Fenway, there is the green monster.
    But this is just ugly.
