One of the popular suggestions for a corporate sponsor for Rupp Arena has been Big Ass Fans, the Lexington-based fan manufacturer. Big Ass Fans jumped on board that bandwagon this morning by posting this picture on their Facebook page, with the caption: “We hear they are considering renaming Rupp Arena after the big remodel is completed. We may have an idea or two.”
If you’re listening to the radio show, you heard Lexington mayor Jim Gray say that they will only sell the naming rights to Rupp Arena if there is no other way to finance the renovation. We’ll hold you to that, mayor.
If this ends up being the last resort, I’m all in for “Big Ass Rupp Arena.”
