Nashville Arena will become The Sommet Center today under a naming agreement between the Nashville Predators and Franklin-based Sommet Group, a Predators official said.

A news conference was scheduled for 11 a.m. today. The Predators official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the deal was long-term but would not provide financial details.

You know I had never heard of this company before. Guess it will be good advertising for them. At least it has a name again.

We're not. My sources say they are hot on the trail of "The Nissan Open" for Nashville. A full fledged PGA Tour stop.

I can't think of a "championship" caliber course in the area really...

and also, I wonder how many people will pronounce this the "Summitt" center...quite a few I'm sure

People will continue calling it The GEC for some time to come, much like so many people still call LP Field The Colosseum.

Speaking of names.... Is anyone else on board for calling LP field The Lumber Yard????

It makes great sence since LP is a construction company and evey Sunday the Titans can go lay some wood!!!!!

I think it would be pretty catchy, Lambeau is known as The Frozen Tundra, Cleavland has The Dog Pound, why can't we have The Lumber Yard???? Just a thought.....

I like the wood shack, as that is normally where you go to get your butt spanked.

I've heard that "Through the Green" is champ calibre. Don't know first hand.

This would be a nice addition to the scene in Nashville. I've been to the Wachovia in Charlotte, and it's been very nice for them. I've even been to the Fedex in Memphis. Gosh, I miss my golf.

not a chance! Through the Green is nice (i doubt PGA quality) but its a very short, par 3 course.

maybe there is a secret new cource in the works. something designed by a golfer...maybe even Tiger's first design!

I've tried to roll this around in my head for a couple of days, but it's still not clicking with me. I wish it was just the Nashville Arena again.
