The Chicago White Sox announced Wednesday that their stadium, currently knowns as U.S. Cellular Field, will have its name changed to Guaranteed Rate Field beginning in November.
The name change, as expected, was laughed at by most everyone. It’s just a weird name for a professional sports team venue.
Jokes were aplenty on Twitter, and the White Sox’s crosstown rivals got in on the fun.
Then the Chicago Bears joined the action.
In the White Sox’s defense, if they played at a legendary place such as Wrigley Field or Soldier Field, they probably wouldn’t change the name.
