Nashville Predators to announce "Bridgestone Arena" at press conference tomorrow

Is this what the new marquee will look like in front of the Nashville Predators home ice? (not an actual photo, this is a mockup by Aditya T)

The good news keeps coming for the Nashville Predators today; Michael Cass at the Tennessean reports that the Preds have sent a letter to the Metro Sports Authority (PDF), advising that effective immediately upon Sports Authority approval, 501 Broadway will be renamed "Bridgestone Arena". The team is asking the Authority to call a special meeting for the express purpose of approving the name change.

This is a tremendous boost on the business front for the Predators, as their relationship with the Sommet Group soured over the last several months.
