UP FOR GRABS: In New York, Adam Sichko notes the Univ. at Albany is spending $18M "building a football stadium, set to open in time for the team's Sept. 14 home opener." UA officials said that any day now they will "begin bidding corporate naming rights for the stadium." The school expects to "award a 10-year contract, likely with an option to re-up for another decade" (Albany BUSINESS REVIEW, 6/28 issue).
WATER DAMAGE: Calgary Stampede organizers said that some signature events this year "have been cancelled because flood repairs to the Saddledome cannot be completed in time." The Flames said that everything "below the eight row in the Saddledome is ruined by flooding." Record floodwaters "filled the Saddledome up to the eighth row over a week ago" (CP, 7/1).
