    Luring an inaugural major-league sports franchise to Austin advanced Tuesday from a far-fetched idea to a legitimate possibility. Anthony Precourt, chief executive officer of Precourt Sports Ventures, announced his intention to move Columbus Crew SC, a Major League Soccer franchise, from the capital city of Ohio to the capital of Texas in 2019.
