jayz.jpgNBA mogul and one-time rapper Jay-Z is battling it out with two other companies to rename the arena where his partially-owned New Jersey Nets play. So of the possible choices, what’s the classiest option: the Izod Arena, the Southpole Arena, or the Rocafella Arena? I’m going with Southpole because it makes me think of penguins, and not alligators or Jay-Z. [Billboard]

    @brainchild: I was wondering the same thing! At the very least, this should indicate that the Atlantic Yards project will be even more delayed.

    @maura: they need to just go ahead and cancel it.

    also, can you delete my repeated comment and the follow up? i don’t wanna look like i just learned how to use a computer.
