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 <a href="http://www.sbnation.com/users/Aditya%20T%20(smashville)">Aditya T</a>)

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.
