COMMENT OF THE DAY: A GUIDE TO SOUNDING OUT THE NAMES OF HOUSTON’S ACRONYMED SPORTS STADIUMS NRG“Just make up a pronunciation. “TDECU” becomes “tuh-DECK-you,” and is the response to “why Grandma, what big fists you have!” Likewise, “NRG” becomes “nurg” (a kind of parasitic technician) and “BBVA” becomes “bubba-VUH” (Popul Vuh’s brother from the country).” [Memebag, commenting on Here’s That Downtown View the University of Houston Rotated Its Football Stadium For] Illustration: Lulu

  • Maybe you should hire this Memebag, he/she/it seems to own C of the D. I really have nothing to add here, I think we exhausted the acronym deal of that thread…we seem to all agree that they’re getting a bit precious.

  • I’ll continue banging the drum for “The Union” as new UH stadium moniker.

  • Maybe it’s just me but I dont often hear these sounded out?
