FOXBORO'S BLACKOUT ADDS TO NEW PATS' STADIUM ARGUMENTS

          An "inexpensive line fuse" burned out during play of
     the AFC Championship game yesterday, and play was suspended
     for eleven minutes due to darkness, according to Kevin Paul
     Dupont of the BOSTON GLOBE.  The power outage "could only
     add fuel" to Patriots Owner Robert Kraft's bid for a new
     stadium (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/13).  Kraft, on the incident:
     "You're not thinking that we set this up to happen this
     way?" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 1/12).  NBC's Greg Gumbel noted
     Kraft's stadium pursuit during the delay: "What has been Bob
     Kraft's big move here in New England?  He wants a new
     stadium for these Patriots.  What better argument could he
     have?"  NBC's Cris Collinsworth: "You don't suppose he
     turned the lights out do you?" ("NFL on NBC," NBC, 1/12).
