Citigroup reaffirms its Citi Field naming sponsorship

The second item in my Tuesday newspaper column concerns the ongoing difficulties at Citigroup and how that might affect the $400-million deal to slap its name atop the Mets' new ballyard.

In it Citi reaffirms its commitment in the wake of a bailout, and its CFO admits that even if it wanted out, it has a binding contract.

This is a complex, emotional situation, as you can tell from Rieber's column and the comments in my post Monday.

I made some lame attempts in my collumn to think of government-related names for the stadium - i.e. "Tax Shack" - but readers can surely do better.

Take a stab at it if you can get your comment through our maddening filtering system. The best idea will earn WatchDog kudos.
