The Orlando Magic’s home court has been renamed Amway Arena, and to read True Hoop’s Henry Abbott on the subject, you’d think Dwight Howard had just joined the Zendek Farm.

Take some Amway advice from me: if you meet some potential new friends, and they come over to dinner packing an easel, some catalogs, and the idea that they want to talk to you about “an exciting business opportunity”–send them home immediately. They don’t want to be your friends. They want to sell you crap, and even better they want to make a percentage when you sell your friends crap. It might be good for business, but it’s not good for friendships.

The only funny scene in the motion picture “Go” is sort of based on this, but I don’t want to give it away if you’re ever having a Sarah Polley film festival.

On the bright side, at least the Magic didn’t sell the naming rights to Main Street USA, Inc.
