Center of Attention

I have a hard time with sports venues changing their names.  Candlestick Park will never be 3Com Stadium (at Candlestick Point).  The Giants play at the most beautiful ball park in America: PacBell Park.  The Jazz's homecourt is the Delta Center, not the EnergySolutions Arena.  And despite all efforts to the contrary, Salt Lake's all-purpose arena is the E-Center, not the Maverik Center.

Anyway, Star and I went to see a Monster Truck rally tonight at the E-Center.  By my count, it was the 6th different type of event I've attended there.  Talk about multi-purpose room versatile.  Here's the list: 
  1. Monster Truck Rally
  2. Utah Grizzlies (minor league ice hockey)
  3. Cirque du Soleil's "Saltimbanco"
  4. Utah Blaze (arena football)
  5. So You Think You Can Dance concert
  6. Days of '47 Rodeo
This does not even count Star's Neil Diamond concert and Olympic hockey game or Marshall's Yo Gabba Gabba Live.  Someone, somewhere must keep track of the most eclectic venues in America; if so, the E-Center has to rank right up there.  Next up: "Yanni in Concert."  No joke.
