A NEW DAY IN TAMPA BAY: RAYMOND JAMES SET TO OPEN ON SUNDAY

          Raymond James Stadium in Tampa will officially open on
     Sunday as the Bucs host the Bears.  But in Tampa, Pugliese &
     Smith report that many fans had not received their season
     tickets for the new facility, which "prompted a flood of
     telephone calls" to the team.  Other "concerned season-
     ticket holders stormed the team's headquarters."  Ken
     Goodwin, a season-ticket holder since '76: "It just really
     aggravates me these people have the audacity to take our
     money since 1995 -- with interest -- and wait until the last
     minute to send us our tickets."  The Bucs, "who declined
     comment, remain optimistic that people will have their
     season tickets by today" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 9/18).  Today's ST.
     PETE TIMES provides a special section on the new facility
     titled, "Raymond James Stadium: Dropping Anchor."  The
     section examines the stadium's construction, the field, and
     the luxury and club seating (ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 9/18).
