Who should get naming rights to the Superdome?



Oh, Lord, wont you buy me a Mercedes-Benz Superdome...

Tonight, WWL-TV ran a picture of the Louisiana Superdome with a slapped-together sign on the side that read MERCEDES-BENZ SUPERDOME. No, the naming rights hadn't been sold — yet — the New Orleans Saints front office was just trying to drum up some interest in the prospect:

Thursday night, Saints Vice President of Communications Greg Bensel confirmed the banner, saying the team has been pitching the naming-rights idea to several different companies.

Bensel said they have been placing different brands on banners and then taking pictures of them to show potential companies what the ‘Dome would look like with their logo on it.

OK, but ... Mercedes-Benz? Has anyone given Ronnie Lamarque rights of first refusal? He could project his commercials on the side of the Dome during game days.

What about Chip Forstall (at least he'd probably put on some good concerts, and that bald head would make a nice visual pun with the shape of the Dome)?

Or ... Da Rocky & Carlo's Superdome ("Ladies Welcome")?

Twitter was immediately abuzz with ideas, with people using the hashtag #SuperdomeNamingRights.

Who do you think should get the naming rights to the Superdome?
