I think mine will be the darkest there. I'm intentionally going for artistic effect and I don't expect to win a single round. I kind of want to lose. It would suit my concept.

It'll be nice to be just a regular contestant for a change too.

Yeah, the advertising in stadiums is just ridiculous too. I can appreciate having signs like "drink drive, bloody idiot" - those sorts of things should be plastered everywhere. But I'm not going to shop at Dick Smith just because I saw the place advertised, and some don't even make sense! I noticed in the just-finished tri-series, some company had bought shitloads of advertising and just used their acronym. I still have no idea who they are or what they do!

But fuck, there must be something in it, since New Zealand even lost co-hosting the 2003 Rugby World Cup over it. And yeah, if it's keeping the place going, I'll put up with it. Not happily, but it's not the biggest deal.
Signs i like: Something saying which city the venue is in

Signs i fucking hate: Animated signs.

Mine will probably be the poppiest of the bunch. That and probably half the stuff will be unknown to most people.

Phew, England just avoided the follow on. I don't think i'd want to put up with any more 2.10 runs per over, so called batting from England.

I really am tired. I wish I didn't still have 2 hours left to work.

I really have a loose concept right now. I want to tighten it up a lot. I haven't honestly worked on it in about three months, so I need to get on that.

Thankfully I'm on my lunchbreak now. And I still have another 15 (with only 2 hours to go).

I call it the Cake Tin (i hear pretentious Wellingtonians take exception to that though).

I can't, offhand, think of a worse name than Credit Union Australia Stadium Penrith. Fuck. Off.

Also, you'd best get your hell ready to pay. Prime Finance Basin Reserve. Here's a thought, go fuck yourself.
I'm almost tempted to pony up some money to rename some inconsequential small town stadium "GFY Bank Stadium" for the lulz. It'd probably get the place more attention than it ever has received before!

I seriously didn't know any Wellingtonians dislike the term Cake Tin until I read on Wikipedia that they supposedly do. I still don't believe it. Everybody I know in Wellington calls it the Cake Tin. I wouldn't call it anything else. It's a fucking great name.

Credit Union Australia Stadium Penrith? Holy shit. I hadn't heard of that one. My favourites are the ones that people don't actually realise are sponsorship names, like Aussie Stadium in Sydney. I didn't realise that at first. I thought it was a nickname for Stadium Australia/Telstra Stadium.

PRIME FINANCE BASIN RESERVE?! That's happening? Prime Finance, it's time to die, bitch.

I get to listen to music while I work. That's the only redeeming quality.

You do realise animated signs are all created by the Phail Collins Ad Agency?

Nothing like a cd with two whole albums (Fine China's "Jaws of Life" and Jeremy Enigk's "Return of the Frog Queen") on it, on repeat.

I now wish I hadn't used Exit in my last submission because it'd be a great and very ambiguous closer for my current idea.
