Garden-ing

The Garden has returned. In name anyway. I think I like it. It's not "The Boston Garden", but it can be shortened to The Garden. And they're right. Much better than a Center.

The deal ends the whimsical auction of daily naming rights on eBay that resulted in the building being named -- officially, if not in actual usage -- such things as the KurtCenter, the JoeyColinAbbyCenter and the Nocturnal Nannies Arena for 24-hour periods over the past month.

One New York lawyer's bid to name the arena for New York Yankees' star Derek Jeter was derailed after his friend chipped in and they agreed to name it the "Jimmy Fund Center," after the Boston-based cancer charity.

The auctioning raised more than $150,000 for charity over three weeks.

The last of those auctions, for March 13 rights, ended Thursday morning. It was not immediately known what the arena would be called between March 13 and July 1, when it assumes the TD Banknorth name


I think we should call it "Fred".
