Brian, I think "Parasite Park" might be an appropriate new name for Citi Field, since it more accurately describes the purported "sponsor" of the new stadium, when the real sponsors are taxpayers and the people who have been hornswaggled by the smoke and mirrors financial industry. On second thought, maybe "Smoke and Mirrors Stadium" would work, or "Smoke Stadium" for short.
