  • AT LEAST 12 L.A. RESIDENTS HAVEN'T BOUGHT DODGER TICKETS

         The Dodgers still have 15,000 tickets available for
    tonight's divisional playoff series opener against the Reds (L.A.
    TIMES, 10/3).  But Dodger Stadium is the only place tickets
    remain available for tonight's games.  The Yankees sold all
    115,090 tickets for the games tonight and Wednesday against
    Seattle by 4pm yesterday (N.Y. TIMES, 10/3).  In Cleveland, more
    than 14,000 attended a free practice session at Jacobs Field
    yesterday.  Tickets are not available for either game (USA TODAY,
    10/3).  Fans in Colorado were lined up around the block to buy
    remaining tickets for the Braves series.  Colorado's regular
    season games have been sold out for months (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION,
    10/3).

  • OLYMPIC AGREEMENT CALLED "HOCKEY'S FINEST HOUR"

         The NHL's agreement to suspend its season and allow its
    players to play in the '98 Olympics in Nagano is called "one of
    the greatest days in the history of hockey" by Al Strachan in
    this morning's TORONTO SUN.  Strachan writes the combination of
    labor peace, Olympic involvement, harmony with the European
    federations and a World Cup will help the sport "finally claim
    the position on the world's sporting stage that it so long
    deserved."  Strachan:  "For hockey fans, the next few years
    should be a veritable bonanza with world-class tournaments every
    two years."  Strachan predicts the Olympic deal will lead to
    European teams in the NHL, as "the concept has the potential to
    be an economic bonanza."  More good economic news -- Strachan
    adds the NHL sees Nagano "as leverage" to get at least $200M out
    of U.S. TV networks for involvement in the 2002 Games (TORONTO
    SUN, 10/3).  In Philadelphia, Gary Miles writes, "The NBA has one
    'Dream Team.'  The NHL will have six" (PHILA. INQUIRER, 10/3).
