Orlando comedian explains Citrus Bowls' name change to Camping World Stadium

Posted By on Thu, Jul 13, 2017 at 11:50 AM

In his third installment of very "informative" Orlando-centric videos, local comedian and actor Rauce Padgett sheds a little light on the backstory behind the Citrus Bowls' name change to Camping World Stadium.

According to Padgett, the stadium was named by him, and he ended up with this name because everyone in Orlando enjoys ... camping.

This checks out.
In his description of the video, Padgett states that "Camping World Stadium is the dumbest name. The worst. It's awful. So I wrote a sketch about how and why this TERRIBLE name change ever happened."
