    They Call Me Lil' Papa

    Sorry for the title but I like to have fun, deal with it.

    University of Louisville drops Papa John's name from stadium

    Louisville president Neeli Bendapudi announced Friday the school will strip the Papa John's name from its football stadium, renaming it Cardinal Stadium.
    This comes after an interesting choice of words by Mr. Papa John with his hired marketing firm who broke ties with the company/client.

    There is also a tiny bit of buzz about a company called Ivory Tower who makes video games, who just released a game with Papa John's advertisements in it. A few asking the game devs to drop ties with Papa Johns.

    He should start a company making holes, and climb into one.

    Good for the Stadium, I hope others follow suit

    Interesting choice of words is an understatemet

    Using the N word should always get you shamed and fired.

    I wish the stadium names would go back to the way they were in the previous centuries. These corporate sponsored names change so often nowadays that I can't keep track of which is which.

    Yeah, I remember going to JFK stadium in DC. Stadiums used to be civil edifices named after beloved statesmen and paid for by taxpayers. I hate the corporate sponsored names of them now. It's also ruined professional sports. I feel no affection for any team anymore. It's all so corporate. It wasn't always that way. It's a shame so many people don't remember all that.

    In the future, the film "Idiocracy" will looked at as the Nostradamus of our time.

    Well at least we know now that Mr. Papa John is racist.

    Between his use of the N word and his NFL fiasco last year.

    I'm sure he's a very fine person though, as racists go.

    The Pizza was lousy. We have a long time Home grown one. Marian’s Pizza. Folks coming back home ask for it.

    In Cincinnati they want SkyLine Chili and Hotdogs.

    Have never tried it. Now I'm really glad I never did. I have a real Italian restaurant just down a couple of blocks from me.
