Great moments in sports marketing

Florida Atlantic sells the naming rights for its stadium to a multi-national private prison corporation that describes itself as the “world’s leading provider of correctional, detention, and community reentry services.”

Shockingly, it’s getting pushback.  I don’t know why.  Personally, I think “Owlcatraz” kicks ass.

I bet their no pass-out policy’s a bitch, though.

    You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

    “leading provider of correctional, detention, and community reentry services.”

    Thought that was Alabama State’s business model?

    If “Owlcatraz” survives shocking pushback, first thing: lock up Rice for inaugural kick-off classic home game. Half-time show: Clint talks to empty electric chair trucked down from Florida State Prison in Starke. MOB wanders around.

    Does this mean FA will have a whole tesm of lockdown defenders?

      Not only that, the shutdown corners think they spend too much time in solitary while the defensive ends show uncanny self-preservation skillz because they don’t stand around stiff-legged, which according to OBC is a good thing, especially during the post-practice hose and soap hygiene sessions. On the intellectual side of the ball, the chain gang guards are sawed-off and offensive, the ends are high and tight, the quarterbacks are small but slow and the tailbacks, flankers and slot-receivers run for their lives . Go Owl!

    Perhaps Georgia Tech should consider letting a prison corporation name their stadium since most prisons in America are full on a regular basis…
