What's the over/under for the number of minutes into the meeting to discuss the idea of selling a day's naming rights to the FleetCenter for this idea coming up - "Lawyer Tries to Name Boston Arena for Yankee Star."
I'd put it at 10 minutes - it's no later than the fourth question. Right after - "Is it legal," "How much can we get" and "Can we stop obscene language." And probably before any defamation concerns - which, given that it's Boston, could mean derogatory remarks about their own players as much as opposing players.
I can't imagine there are actually legal questions here - there must be an absolute right to deny a name - just a question of - "Do we want to turn down the money?" (YES) and "Will we look petty in doing so?" (Sort of).
Sports Illustrated updates with the following quotes:
Arena officials have reserved the right to approve or reject any winning bid. . . "That name may not be as bad as A-Rod," Delaney [the owner's spokesman] said, referring to Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriquez, "but it's still considered obscene."
