Governor Bredesen sells naming rights to Bicentennial Mall

The smallest state park in Tennessee, formerly known as the Bicentennial Mall will soon be known as ‘Nissan Mall’.

Bredesen explained:

‘We already have a Centennial Park in Nashville. Nobody really understands the ‘Bi’ prefix anyway. Nissan offered to fund my pre-K program for three years as long as the kids were taught Japanese at least one hour during the day’

‘It was a deal the state couldn’t afford to pass up’

Nissan will be allowed to display their latest models of cars, trucks, and SUVS by the dancing fountains and in the grassy part of the mall where people aren’t supposed to walk. Turning the gift shop into a sales office on weekends is being discussed, as long as sales of ‘I heart Nashville’ underwear is not disrupted.

The mall will be officially renamed on May 1st.
