NJ Gov. Christie Whitman yesterday put her state "back in the hunt for Yankee Stadium." Whitman said that her administration will "help prepare a plan for moving the Yankees" to NJ if Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner's "soon- to-be-named advisory panel requests it." However, Whitman "repeated her promise" not to offer the team any benefits not offered to "all employers who move jobs to New Jersey." (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 5/6)....MA-based Arnold Communications has developed a pro bono advocacy campaign for the Save Fenway Park organization. The effort will include TV, radio and print ads, along with other material. TV spots feature interviews with Yankees fans in NYC on why Fenway is special, while print ads focus on the park's history (ADWEEK, 5/4)....In Houston, Dale Robertson writes that IHL Aeros Owner/Compaq Center manager Chuck Watson's decision to pull out of his NFL partnership with Bob McNair "bodes badly" for any compromise solution regarding the Rockets' Compaq Center lease. Now removed from the football mix, Watson will be "disinclined to discuss football stadium tax breaks as a tradeoff for [Rockets Owner Les] Alexander's lease becoming less airtight" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 5/6).
