TACOMA: Strike while the Dome roof’s clean

Let’s get with the times, people.

Roof cleaning at Tacoma Dome finishes on time, within budget. Beautiful. Now is a good time to sell the naming rights.

Why is the Tacoma Dome not named after some large corporation like the rest of the country?

God knows Tacoma could use the money. It could be used specifically to upgrade the Dome and keep it competitive with the rest of the region.

  1. The Gates Dome sounds like a winner!

  2. Not a much as The Tacoma Dome.

  3. averageJoseph says:

    Maybe we could name it the Tacoma Convention center

  4. RLangdon says:

    I like “The Blue Diamond” Dome, if we could get the makers of Blue Diamond Almonds to kick in some cash for that name. Then, if The Dome ever burns down, it could be The Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almond Dome!

  5. Why not, The LeMay Garbage Can Lid Dome?

  6. …and Convention Center

  7. As long as there no major sport(s) being played there were ABC,CBS,NBC ESPN,FOXSPORTS,ROOT & NBCSPORT to broadcast from it will never happen. Because they don’t get advertisement like SAFECO insurance and the Clink does and how Key bank use to.

  8. HistoryFan says:

    How about our neighbor to the south? Name it after Nike, calling it the Dome Run?

  9. The Toyota Tacoma Dome… One of Toyota’s best-selling vehicles… Maybe a decade late on promoting the “new” line, though.
