Brainstorming additional revenue options

Let's put our collective minds together and see if we can't come up with some additional means for Maryland to generate revenue.

In Ben's post breaking down the suggestions a review of the feasability of concert revenue in Comcast has started. To me it is a clearly actionable option.

But what about at Byrd? Could we host larger concerts in that forum? Steal away some of the RFK concerts or entice artists to the larget DC/Baltimore market who couldn't afford nor fill FedEx?

Sponsorships of parking lots. I think there's a chance that MD could brand various parking areas for the football and basketball seasons.

One thing I lament is that during Yow's tenure (yes, I'm going to take some shots at her) we let the hosting of the NCAA Lacrosse Tournament slip away. I know several people who were involved in getting that to MD to beging with, interacted with Yow and other State and University officials. We had a very serious chance to lock that up to a long-term hosting contract. But Yow refused. We made money on that, plus it put us into the limelight, was fantastic for recruiting etc.

Any other suggestions? Is it feasible to sell the naming rights to non-revenue producing venues that win national championships? Soccer gets a healthy number of attendees, could we market that?
