The Verizon Center has officially been re-branded as the “Capital One Arena”. Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post broke the story first saying “Monumental will also announce a separate $40 investment in the privately owned arena, with the money going toward projects such as Monumental360 — a data-based effort to analyze fan preferences — and a new point-of sale system, meant to create more efficient lines. That system will likely offer discounts to Capital One cardholders.” I have to assume the “40$” is likely meant to represent 40 million dollars.
The “phone booth” is now the ATM. I used to (and still probably will) laugh at older people who called things by old name (for example calling Baltimore Arena The Civic Center). However I think I may have issue calling the Capital One Arena by it’s name, I think, at least for the near future, it will be the Verizon Center to me. I guess it’s just a part of growing up as a sports fan.
