Oh for the days that we went to "Derks Field" to watch the Bees play.
Shouldn't the name be "The Beehive"?We humans are so weird.
"There are major 15 sports venues between Provo and Logan..."Does anyone
Why not have Larry H. Miller persuade some of the big boys at a profitable
retail auto dealer to buy the naming rights to the stadium. It's intended to
raise awareness of the brand and help consumers remain aware of the products
