Pucks and Balls and the Public Good.April 6, 2016
It’s spring and the Hartford Yard Goats are to start their maiden voyage. It’s also been 25 years since an $18 million public investment opened the Connecticut Tennis Center in New Haven that quickly grew up to be a white elephant whose wheezy signature event, the New Haven Open, was recently bought by the state. And 20 years ago, the Hartford Whalers began their fateful final season, although their logo lives on in America’s most coveted defunct sports franchise merchandise. Does spending taxpayer money on pro sports really help the people who foot the bill? Are there better uses for our money? McEnroe and his panelists—which include MetroHartford Alliance President and CEO Oz Griebel, owner of the Hartford Yard Goats Josh Solomon, professor of economics at the College of the Holy Cross Victor Matheson—will talk about that.
Based on the premise that everyone loves a juicy conversation and in the best tradition of Connecticut conversation, Freshly Squeezed with Colin McEnroe is a series of nimble, participatory and personal events hosted by Colin McEnroe. All of the profit from ticket sales benefits the education programs of three shining Hartford institutions: Billings Forge, Hartford Stage and the Mark Twain House. The series is generously sponsored by Fiduciary Investment Advisors.
