     Roger Faulkner, chair of the group bidding for a Detroit MSL
franchise, says the city's chances of attracting a team are
diminished because no proper stadium is available.  The 80,000-
seat Silverdome, whch was used during the World Cup, is too large
for the 20,000-capacity which MLS officials are seeking.  MLS
also wants its teams to at least have "long term plans" for
natural grass field (DETROIT NEWS, 10/19)....The Yankees, the
Tampa Sports Authority and Hillsborough County break ground today
on the team's $17.5M, 10,000-seat spring training stadium and
practice facility (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 10/20)....The new United Center
has a seatside computer menu by the arena's concessionaire,
Bismarck Services.  The in-seat service is available to club and
courtside ticket holders and could generate $1M per year (CHICAGO
SUN-TIMES, 10/19).
