          NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani took a private tour of Oriole
     Park at Camden Yards yesterday (N.Y. POST, 6/16)....In
     Baltimore, about half of the 100,000 square feet of
     SportGrass being laid at the Ravens' new stadium yesterday
     was transported by tractor trailers from Memorial Stadium
     (Baltimore SUN, 6/16).  With two months remaining before the
     Ravens' stadium opens, the SUN's Jon Morgan writes an
     extensive report on the construction efforts (SUN, 6/15).
     ...In Pittsburgh, Fitzpatrick & Barnes wrote that Steelers
     President Dan Rooney's offer to contribute $50M toward a new
     football stadium "makes other teams in the Steelers'
     division look cheap by comparison."  The Jaguars, Ravens,
     Bengals and Browns "contributed less, percentage-wise to the
     construction of projects in their cities."  Only the Oilers
     will contribute more.  If the Plan B project stays on
     budget, Rooney's ownership group will pay 21.5% of the total
     price for a new stadium (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 6/15).
