#obamasfavoriteballparks

In an interview with the MLB Network on Tuesday, President Obama botched the name of his beloved White Sox’s former home.  He referred to Comiskey Park (which has seen been replaced by US Cellular Field on the South Side) as “Cominskey Field.”  Wrong on two counts.  Since Obama fancies himself a diehard Sox fan, this amounts to a fairly significant sports faux pas.

Since some bloggers were having fun with his slip-up, I decided to join the festivities by creating a Twitter hashtag: #obamasfavoriteballparks.  The Twitterverse soon caught on, and delivered some gems:

– DNC Park, Pittsburgh

– Progressive Tax Field, Cleveland

– Nationalized Park, Washington DC

– The Metrosexual Dome, Minneapolis

– Tropiyeswecana Field, Tampa Bay

Yes We Candlestick Park, San Francisco

– PETAco Park, San Diego

– Yankee Go Home Stadium, New York

– Loan Shark Stadium, Miami

– Citizens Bankroll Park, Philadelphia

And your winner…

– Che Stadium, New York (kudos to @ericcwhite.  Brilliant.)
