Tucked in at the end of the AJ-C’s article on the $40 million expansion approved for Butts-Mehre (recession? what recession?) is this little financial tidbit:
… The board also approved a fiscal year 2010 operating budget of $71.4 million for the athletics association, up 12.2 percent from this fiscal year. Projected revenue for the 2010 fiscal year is $84.8 million, up 11.2 percent.
Much of the revenue increase is attributed to the new SEC television contract, which more than offsets a drop of $2 million-$3 million in contributions tied to football season tickets.

Is the projected $84,800,000.00 revenue for 2010 what the Congressional Budget Office Director would call a ‘side business’?
Please tell me that the post title is a Local Hero reference…
It’s not, but that’s a great pic. Excellent soundtrack, too.
Senator, you’re one of only half a dozen people I have come who have even heard of the movie, let alone seen it. Or enjoyed the soundtrack. Goodonya.
