IS TORONTO A CITY "WAITING FOR NFL"?

     Toronto will host the American Bowl game between the Cowboys
and the Bills at SkyDome Saturday. Since the "day the [Sky] Dome
opened, there has been little doubt that this is a stadium -- and
a city -- in waiting for the NFL," writes Ken McKee in the
TORONTO STAR.  SkyDome VP/Corporate Affairs David Garrick: "We
are trying to make an impression on the NFL ... this will be
bigger than the Grey Cup (in attendance, merchandise sales,
etc.)."  Garrick says attendance for the game will hit 55,000,
with tickets at C$35 (TORONTO STAR, 8/10).
