A Weill Overture?

Sandy Weill made headlines earlier this week because of a big deal, but not on behalf of his company, Citigroup Inc.

Her workplace is the RBC Center, a year-old entertainment and sports arena in Raleigh that is home to the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes and the North Carolina State University men's basketball team.

Royal Bank of Canada -- which brands all its business units with the initials RBC -- last summer agreed to pay $80 million over the next 20 years to put its name on the Raleigh arena. …
