Somebody called it Beyoncé Boulevard and everybody started using it
Bermudians like to honour distinguished locals — but Beyoncé?
You might do a double-take at the new walkway at the National Sports Centre, and ask how it links us to the US superstar.
According to Facility Manager Trevor Madeiros, the sign, put up last week, merely consecrates an in-joke among staff.
The walk of fame marks the spot where Beyoncé Knowles made her entrance at the 2008 Music Festival at the stadium.
We had to tidy up the driveway for her to come through to perform — it was a construction site at the time, Mr Madeiros explained.

So many people use the name when giving directions to visitors that it finally got its own sign.
Its nothing really official, added Mr Madeiros. Its an internal thing that we put up ourselves.
