Where's WSI member Fenway on this one?

And in more news from the Alternate Universe, the FleetCenter will be re-named the Derek Jeter Center on Tuesday.
Big Apple attorney Kerry Conrad shelled out $2,325 on eBay for the one-day naming rights to sock it to his Sox-lovin' buds in Boston. But the crew on Causeway Street think they may have to invoke their right to refuse the name.
``I told him that in this town, that name may not be as bad as A-Rod, but it's still considered obscene,'' said arena spokesguy Jim Delaney. ``But he told me, `It's not like I picked the Aaron Boone Center or the Bucky Dent Center.' ''
Ooooh, whatta shiv in the back!

There's more, but I am not going to post all of it...just the gist of it.

My thoughts...stupid -- just like every Yankee and most Red Sox fans.

It was in another thread, but not the Jeter portion

I just think that if the Sox decided to do this then all hell would break lose.

It happens in Boston and it is cute...until now!

They should have rewarded him his money back if they weren't going to do what he paid for.
