George Lucas Museum At Sports Arena?

SPORTS.ARENABefore he dropped that F-bomb at the L.A. Kings’ celebration, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti wrote a letter to George Lucas asking him to build his planned art museum at the site of the Sports Arena.

Lucas is a USC graduate and built the sparking new cinema school but if the Sports Arena is torn down for the proposed museum, what happens to that idea of housing an MLS team (Chivas USA) at the site? Or building extra parking? That seems the least likely option for the site, unfortunately, for those seeking more parking on game days, especially with the increase in midweek home games. I suppose a Lucas Museum would be fine as long as there is a wookie exhibit and no statues of Lucas wearing Nikes as a USC student.

    I went to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch yesterday and ate 20 wings and french fries. I had a large Hefeweizen beer as my beverage to drink.

      Do the waitresses their still have guts as big as Scotties?

      • Juan Carlos

        My waitress was rather large around the abdominal area. I tried to ignore it and focus on the sports on the televisons.

        How about as big as your gut, Garry Bleauz? Drop 80.

            No one needs to do that with your IBS issues Garry Bleauz. Drop 80 and that overworked gall bladder will resume normal function.

            1980s references? You really need a new writer. CowPolyFan3.0 is letting you down.

    Golly-Nerd would love a George Lucas Star Wars Museum!

  • https://www.facebook.com/yo.duh.31 YoDuh

    a putz, Lucas is.

    his idea of art, a plastic lunch pail is.

    herh herh herh!

    …the Cadre rules!

  • B.Miller

    YET ANOTHER COMPLAINING POST!

  • rusoviet

    Lucas hasn’t directed anything but Star Wars ilk since 1977 –

    Why not put up another museum for Ruth Handler? She created the Barbie Doll.

    • NOBSisdaMAN

      All the Barbie dolls are at buckets

      You’ve been drunk and saying the same thing not stop since 1938 but that doesn’t stop you from inflicting your krap on this blog.

  • Scott

    Lots of really intelligent comments here. Unless I’m mistaken, under the terms of USC’s lease, the university controls this decision entirely, not the mayor of LA.

  • UCLA Bleauz

    The entire comment section for this blog entry may as well be deleted, based on the recent carnage set forth by the moderator…..

  • JayJR

    No going to happen. Obviously the Mayor didn’t run this idea pass USC, which has other plans for the Sports Arena site – a revenue generating soccer stadium that would also plan a role in any future Olympics.

    He also failed to look at the lease agreement – Section 12 – which clearly state USC has control and decision authority over keeping or replacing the Sports Arena. It states in part – “[USC] shall have the right, but not the obligation, to demolish the Sports Arena… [Coliseum Commission] approval shall not be required for the use of the Sports Arena Property for a soccer stadium, sports training facilities, playing fields, museum, amphitheater or other similar event space, provided that the improvements are operated in a manner consistent with the public benefit requirements of the lease.”
