Thanks for all of your comments.  It seems it is now confirmed it is a juvenile 
female cooper's.  I was meeting someone for work by the stadium when this 
happened, and I happened to have my camera in the car.  I shot a short HD video 
also, which I may try to post on youtube, but it is pretty gruesome.  I've 
attached another  picture of this hawk, and a picture of a juvenile male 
cooper's hawk I saw in front of Mt. Olivet Cemetery on Lebanon Rd. on October 
18 with a blue-jay kill.  I know about reversed size dimorphism in raptors, but 
the "stadium hawk"  seemed enormous compared to the "cemetery hawk" I thought 
it must be a different species.  Oh well, it was still a nice encounter.  
Thanks again for your comments and correct id of the bird.
