    So what does that do to the always empty (unless college teams are playing) Alltel Stadium.

    AllSmell was a shitty provider (edited for clarity). Good career move.

    Alltel Stadium hasn't been Alltel for a while. It's Jacksonville Municipal. Unless there's another Alltel out there.
     
  8. I guess no company wanted to be associated with it.

    So will there be a new ad with the dweeb who has Verizon on his shirt punching out Chad to take control?

    Alltel Arena in Little Rock.

    A white elephant if there ever was one. They hold two UA basketball games there and a few arena2 games a year, and that's it unless they luck out on an NCAA subregional like they did this spring, or the odd tractor pull or .38 Special concert.

    Plus...it's Alltel Arena, sponsored by a wireless company...with no wireless internet. Unless that has changed in the past several months.

    And VCU plays in the Alltel Pavilion at Siegel Center, or something like that. But they had wireless interbutt last time I was there.
