The Colts’ New Home: Lucas Oil Stadium?

Filed in SportsTags: Colts, Indiana, Indianapolis, NFL

Several Indiana news outlets, including the Indy Star, are reporting that Lucas Oil Products will have naming rights to the Colts' new stadium, expected to be completed in 2008:

The naming rights for the new Colts stadium are expected to be awarded to Lucas Oil Products, a California-based company started by a small-town Indiana trucker, according to people with knowledge of the negotiations who requested anonymity.

And as for how they'll use those naming rights?

The domain names www.lucasoilstadium.com and www.lucasstadium.com were registered Monday with the Internet company Network Solutions.

I can see the nicknames already:

The Oil Field

The Petroledome (well, I'm leaning toward this one, anyway)
