GOING FOR THE SPORTS TOURISTS.

Huskie Stadium will be the location of the state high school football title games, in odd-numbered years.  That will be one good weekend for the hospitality industry.  There are 103 additional weekends, though, for which any hoped-for investments in new hotels and eateries must find sources of revenue.  And the propensity -- nay, avarice -- of the Mid-American Conference to schedule home games on weekdays (despite objections from knowledgeable people) further depresses the animal spirits.
