New York Attorney Has Ample Cash and Balls

February 25th, 2005 | by Mike |

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.

    The way this is working is that a winning bidder gets to rename the stadium for a single day. The signs get changed, the phone are answered differently, the whole schebang. I think there’s a month of winners (or something like that).

    Golden Palace Casino paid $35,000, and Fark.com paid $2,550. I’m guessing the widding bids are higher on days when something is actually happening at the staduim, which is why Fark’s is so low… Fark won on February 28, so keep an eye out.

    The cash goes to charity. The DenverPost.com has an informative story:

    Ah, that makes much more sense. Good to see a huge site like ESPN ran with that article without getting the whole set of facts. Thanks for clearing that up for me and everyone else.
