The Fleet Center, for those that don’t know, is a sports arena in the middle of Boston. Its the home of the Celtics and the currently resting, Bruins. The Fleet Center is looking for a name change and they posted the rights up on E-Bay.
The winning bid? $2,300 (Which doesn’t seem near enough to me, but thats what ESPN is reporting) Heres the real twist though: The winning bid was placed by New York lawyer Kerry Konrad, and he wants to change the name of the Fleet Center, which is in the heart of Boston remember, to the “Derek Jeter Center”. Derek Jeter being the face of the New York Yankees and one of the most hated men in Boston! Balls…huge balls.
Of course the Fleet Center most likely won’t go along with this and has already told Konrad that they will have to “think about it”. Somehow I think they’ll end up saying No…just a hunch I have.
However I am now a huge fan of one Kerry Konrad! This guy is hilarious! The best part is that he didn’t even try to hide his name in any way…he just came out there and tried to change a name of a freakin’ arena in Boston to the name of one of the most famous Yankees ever. That is an act I would do in a second if I had some extra scratch laying around.
Kerry Konrad: You are awesome.
