The Real Winner

So, much to my disappointment, the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls in Game 5 of  the Eastern Conference Finals and will once again face the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, but we all know who the real winner in this match up is:


American Airlines.

The series will be played at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas and the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida. By knocking out the Bulls, Miami spared American from having to share the spotlight with their number one competitor, United Airlines, who provided the namesake (and funding) for Chicago's United Center.

Not only does this seem like a very odd match up of stadiums, but it already happened only a few years ago. Who will the people at AA be rooting for? If anybody else knows of any other interesting stadium match ups from previous playoff series in any sport, feel free to post them.

  4. And in Europe the "Turkish Arlines Euroleague" Final 4 for the next year will be held in Turkey. Seems like the Airlines are taking over the sports world.
