WEDNESDAY WEB SITES OF THE WEEK: GOTTA BE THE SHOES

     The latest in this summer's string of sports-related movies
is MGM's "Kingpin," which aspires to do for bowling what
"Caddyshack" did for golf.  The "Kingpin" Web site at
http://www.mgmua.com/kingpin/main.html offers some background on
the plot (you know the story -- Amish boy taken under wing by
one-handed former phenom with revenge against evil rival as the
ultimate goal), as well as the vision of the filmmakers.  Co-
Director Peter Farrelly:  "After this movie, bowling will either
be brought back or it will be banned entirely."  The site also
has the schedule for the now-completed "Kingpin Across America"
tour, which starred Calvert DeForest (a.k.a. Larry "Bud" Mellman)
and sought to establish bowling as an Olympic sport.  The
"Kingpin" site also features links to other bowling areas,
including the PBA's official site at http://www.pba.org.
Sponsored by Brunswick, with promises of a heightened role from
the company, the site offers the latest info on the tour, chats
with other bowlers, and a merchandise site offering a poster of
the "Million Dollar Club" (THE DAILY).
