So the Arizona Cardinals moved out of Sun Devil Stadium (home of the ASU Sun Devils) and got themselves a new state-of-the-art facility in Glendale, a city in the west valley. By all accounts it is a sweet stadium.
With Super Bowl XLII in 2008 on the horizon, the naming rights for the new stadium are up for grabs and the Cardinals went with … University of Phoenix Stadium. Yup. $154.5 million later and a 20-year deal and those powerhouses of the NFL are willing to sound like a freeking college team. At least they play like one.
UoP, for those that dont know is a for-profit school that is largely online-based. The Cardinals are a for-profit franchise that
is largely are losers.
