[Comments] (6) Sony Walkman Personal Stereo Park: San Francisco renamed Candlestick Park to Monster Park, hopefully because monster.com gave them a lot of money but also because "Monster Park" sounds cool and scaray. How about renaming Alcatraz to Monster Island?

That is so weird! Why would you name a park "MonsterPark"??? Except for the aforementioned reasons of course.

Aha! I was wondering yesterday why I'd never noticed the signs on the freeway for that exit before. After all, a sign for "Monster Park" is pretty darn noticeable.

Monster Park!

I work on Alcatraz, and I for one welcome our new Monster overlords.

The name rights were actually purchased by Monster Cable and not monster.com.

Some of us here in San Francisco don't care for how the city whores out Candlestick Park so we voted to rename it back to Candlestick.

How come they just put up the signs recently, after that proposition passed? Petty vengeance?
