STADIUM NOTES

          A reported deal between Seattle and the Mariners is "on
     the skids again amid growing signs of opposition by City
     Council members."  A news conference to announce a proposal
     for the city and the M's to share game-day costs was
     canceled by Mayor Norm Rice late Tuesday (SEATTLE TIMES,
     1/8)....In Houston, at Mayor Bob Lanier's request, the City
     Council unanimously approved a contract Wednesday to hire
     lawyer Richard Caldwell for $40,000 to "represent the city's
     interest in [Rocket's owner Les] Alexander's lawsuit to get
     out of the Rockets' lease of the city-owned Summit" (HOUSTON
     CHRONICLE, 1/9)....Developers Jim Bradley and Tom Bradley
     will head the building of the $6M Ice Sports Forum in
     Brandon, FL -- a twin-rink ice-skating facility that will
     become the practice home for the Lightning (Lightning).
     ...Renovations at the Rose Bowl include the selection of a
     Panasonic Astrovision Giant Video Display Screen.  The
     Astrovision purchase is part of the $22M Rose Bowl
     Improvement Project currently underway (Rose Bowl).
