Memphis's prospective Arena Football League expansion franchise "moved closer Friday to a lease for The Pyramid" -- the final step before the team becomes official. AFL Commissioner Jim Drucker will attend a 2:30pm (CST) press conference today to award the franchise conditional on an arena lease. The Memphis ownership group is headed by businessman Kevin Hunter. The franchise would be the AFL's 15th, joining St. Louis, Des Moines and Hartford as new '95 members (David Williams, Memphis COMMERCIAL APPEAL, 10/1).
