POCKLINGTON INTERESTED IN ADDING TO SPORTS EMPIRE

     NHL Oilers Owner Peter Pocklington is "seriously
considering" buying the CFL Eskimos, according to Cam Cole of
SOUTHAM NEWS.  Cole writes that Pocklington "wouldn't mind being
the baron of all pro sport in his town."  Pocklington, who also
owns the AAA Trappers:  "I've got the infrastructure totally in
place, from concessions to management to promotions to contacts
in the concert business.  The Eskimos, quite frankly, would just
be an offshoot of all that" (SOUTHAM/CALGARY HERALD, 2/25).
