          In Denver, the Metropolitan Football Stadium Board
     "voted unanimously to recommend" that the state Legislature
     "throw out" plans for a possible retractable dome on a new
     stadium for the Broncos.  The Board also recommended that
     the Legislature allow the Board to retain control of
     "potentially lucrative" naming rights to a new stadium. 
     Naming rights "could generate more than" $20M a year in
     revenues (DENVER POST, 3/20)....The TAMPA TRIBUNE notes
     problems at newly constructed Tropicana Field, which hosts
     this weekend's NCAA South regionals.  The stadium's rotunda,
     its "signature architectural feature," was closed because it
     was leaking "badly."  NCAA Media Coordinator Jim Marchiony:
     "There are still issues here and they're being worked on"
     (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/20)....The Flyers announced plans to build
     a $10M twin rink skating center in Voorhees, PA, which would
     serve as the practice facility for the Flyers and the AHL
     Phantoms (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 3/20).
