Philadelphia officials said yesterday that the city "has obtained two key pieces of privately owned land" in South Philadelphia needed for the new Eagles and Phillies stadiums, but "they declined to reveal how much the city paid for it" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 1/30)....In Cincinnati, John Erardi profiled Cinergy Field's major renovations, including the "vibrant expanse" of natural green grass and the new view of the OH River. Erardi wrote the "view alone may have the greatest impact." Erardi added that "no longer valid is the criticism that when you're seated inside Cinergy Field, you don't know whether you're in Cincinnati or Atlanta or Pittsburgh" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/27)....In Hartford, Christopher Keating wrote that the Univ. of CT's new football stadium received final approval Friday when the State Bond Commission voted to release $71M for its construction. The 40,000-seat, open-air stadium in East Hartford will open in '03 (HARTFORD COURANT, 1/27).
