Sorry Arizona residents, the Arizona Tourism and Sports Authority has nixed the $30M proposal by the Pink Taco restaurant group for naming rights to the Cardinals’ new stadium. This shouldn’t be a suprise as there was no chance of a stadium called The Pink Taco. It just couldn’t be done. When the Eagles lost their first two games in the new home, the newspaper headlines said “Stink at the Linc”. Imagine what it would’ve been if the Cardinals lost at home to, say, the Raiders or the Giants.
