TWIN BEAKS: RAVENS SCULPTURE UNLIKELY THIS YEAR AT STADIUM

          Ravens Exec VP David Modell said yesterday that "he
     doubts a 40-foot raven sculpture will be perched atop the
     club's new stadium when it opens this fall," according to
     Vito Stellino of the Baltimore SUN.  The proposed sculpture
     "has become a point of dispute" between the team and MD
     Stadium Authority Chair John Moag, who believes it would be
     a signature look for blimp TV shots during games.  Modell
     said that he's not against the idea, but other fan amenities
     are more important.  The Ravens "have the call because funds
     for the sculpture aren't in the stadium authority's budget." 
     Moag's original projected cost was $250,000, but Modell
     believes that it will cost $500,000.  Meanwhile, Modell said
     that the stadium's brick exterior will be a signature in
     itself, without the sculpture (Baltimore SUN, 3/27).
