So we have a new name for our arena Downtown.

That's nice, but it presents a problem for those of us who refer to the Bradley Center as the "BC." That phrase has been made famous by local sports talk and TV guys.

But they can't use it now that the place is the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

So what can we do for a snappy abbreviation for the facility?

It could be the BBC (B Bradley Center). Or maybe the Beemer.

Maybe we could call it the "Buh-moh." That's just a pronunciation guide.

I'm not good at this kind of thing, so any help would be appreciated.

He's seen Milwaukee grow, suffer pangs of growth, strive for success and has been involved in many efforts to both shape and re-shape the city. He's a happy man, now that he's quit playing golf, and enjoys music, his children and grandchildren and the myriad of sports in this state. He loves great food and hates bullies and people who think they are smarter than everyone else.

This whole Internet thing continues to baffle him, but he's willing to play the game as long as keeps lending him a helping hand. He is constantly amazed that just a few dedicated people can provide so much news and information to a hungry public.

Despite some opinions to the contrary, Dave likes most stuff. But he is a skeptic who constantly wonders about the world around him. So many questions, so few answers.
