Would you fly out of Rolling Rock Field?

So county councilman Ed Kress wants to offer the name of the airport to any company willing to shell out $50 million.

Just what we need. Another corporately branded building. Some possibilities:

The 84 Lumber Nemacolin Hardy Magerko International Airport

Heinz Field: Not THAT Heinz Field

The Teresa Heinz Kerry International Airport: Shove it!

PNC International: For just ten dollars extra, you can ride the escalator!

The Christina Aguilera Airstrip: Dirrty!

Ariba Airport: Arriba! Abajo! Al Centro! Pa Dentro!

Fifth Third International Airport: TOTALLY* free parking!

Rolling Rock Field: Pilots drink free!

    Is that a shot at Christina?
    I thought you were done with all that?

    Not a shot at all. Christina takes pride in being “dirrty”, hell she named a song “Dirrty.” It’s more like a TRIBUTE to her.

    SIgh…must everything be named for some bucks? How about The Allegheny COunty/Duquesne Light Courthouse?

    Naming rights for the Parkway? WHen will it stop? Why can’t structures designed for general public, civil use just have common-sense names?

    Hey pittgirl,

    These are some great names. I’m trying to collect some good pgh airport names at my “Name the Pittsburgh Airport” posting. If you post any entries in the comments there I’ll add them to the list.
