I have a friend who works as a sports facility consultant. I think that would be one of the coolest jobs ever. When planning cities and sporting entertainment, you help with the construction of a stadium. How cool is that! So, basically ever NFL, MLB or NBA stadium you know of has had one of these guys come in and do their job. Some of the work figuring out the financing, but a lot of the work is clearing out space for these large stadiums. When most stadiums are built in urban areas, it's hard to find a large amount of real estate. A lot of times, a college or pro team will have to buy out people from their homes. That's not so easy to do when you are talking about senior citizens who have been in a place their whole life. And when it comes to seniors, you need to advise them properly when moving, or else they will wind up in a hospital being treated by people in jockey medical uniforms. That is definitely the tricky part of the job.
I wish we had had a different consultant in Cincinnati. Whoever got Paul Brown stadium built screwed the taxpayers royally in Hamilton County.
