"Banks Shouldn't Name Ball Fields"

Here's a bizarre article about why you shouldn't name your park after a bank. I'm posting it here because I found this part ironic:

Bank-named ballparks have not done that well for the teams, either. Cumulatively, there have been 25 seasons played in bank-named ballparks, but the home team has managed to post winning records in only 9 of those seasons. The average record in bank-named ballparks has been 75 wins and 87 losses.

Kevin McClatchy probably added, "Yeah, that's exactly what I was going for. Naming our park after PNC Bank showed how dedicated we were to bringing a 75-win team to Pittsburgh."
