    Air Canada has never come across as corporate to me. I know it's an Airline, but "Air Canada" always sounded more like a broader name than that. Plus, people started to call Vince Carter "Air Canada" for his dunking ability.
    You just know Matt and Jack are going to start the "Raptor player X with a 'scotiabank' shot off the glass" shtick right away.

    Wait, does that mean BMO is gone? More importantly, their commercials? Though they're just going to be replaced with new bank ads that are just as overplayed and annoying...so, meh.

    We're taking our Atlantic Division rivalry with Boston to a new level.

    Airline names were the 'cool' things to do in the 90s. There were tons of them.

    Delta Center
    American Airlines Center
    American Airlines Arena
    US Airways Center
    United Center
    America West Arena

    I guess banks are the new flavour.

    Scotiabank Arena - Toronto
    Scotiabank Saddledome - Calgary
    Scotiabank Convention Centre - Niagara Falls
    Scotiabank Place - Ottawa

    Wonder what the collective sponsorship cost was for all these spots. And whether it actually makes a damn difference in terms of the public's banking preferences.

    When choosing a lender, I tend to prioritize a lower interest rate over mutual sports fandom

    Don't forget the Scotiabank Pond at Downsview, and Scotiabank Center in Halifax.

    I hear they are looking into changing it from "Toronto" to "Scotiabank City".

    Asking the real questions. Lol

    Though, actually, now that I think about it, a few years back I used like 13,000 Scene points (didn't know I had them... LOL) to buy a playoff ticket for like $10.

    $800M over 20 years? what the fuck lol.

    I mean, hey, almost nobody my age can get a real career-entering job, but at least the banks are doing well, right?

    Not sure if "going to the ACC" rolled of the tongue initially but it sounds smooth enough now. What will the new short form be? "Going to the Skosh"? "The SA"? Maybe "the Bank"?
    If I don't continue saying ACC, I'd likely just use The Bank.
    Just one year away... Bruno is almost here!

    $800m over 20 years is a very good deal. It just shows that Toronto sports(and entertainment life?!) are booming and we're no doubt top 5 market in the America.

    In the UK, Arsenal(UK soccer club) got only 150m for 16-year deal. I've read somewhere that Chelsea and Tottenham are looking for 400-500m, 20-year deal. Barcelona FC got 200M euros.

    I think my mind is slowly settling on "ehhhhBankarena" (arm-crossing dance moves optional).
