         The Twin Cities' Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission
    is expected to announce the formation of an advisory task force
    on professional sports on Wednesday, according to Jay Weiner in
    this morning's Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE.  The task force will
    reportedly hold meetings throughout this summer and fall to
    gather information about the health of the area's teams and
    willingness of other cities to "throw money at teams."  The group
    will then give its recommendations to the MSFC by December 1.  A
    sampling of issues to be discussed: should a new stadium for the
    Twins be built?; should the Metrodome be remodeled and naming
    rights be sold?; can the area support two, three or four major
    sports teams?  The MSFC is expected to forward the task force's
    recommendations to the MN legislature later this year or early in
    '96 (Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 7/18).
