BOSTON SPORTS SCENE SET TO PARTY LIKE IT'S 1999

          The '99 Ryder Cup at The Country Club in Brookline, MA, 
     "will be the centerpiece" of an "impressive array of events"
     scheduled to take place in Boston that year, according to
     Will McDonough of the BOSTON GLOBE.  The Country Club has
     "already sold" 57 corporate tents at $250,000 each for the
     week.  That, along with TV revenues, ticket sales, and
     concessions and merchandising revenue means the event "will
     spin off" $90-100M.  Pat Moscaritolo, President of Boston's
     Visitors and Convention Bureau said "something like" 6,000
     of the city's hotel rooms "have already been booked for that
     week," half of the rooms in Boston.  In '99, Boston will
     also host MLB's All-Star Game at Fenway Park, two rounds of
     the NCAA basketball tournament at the FleetCenter, and The
     Davis Cup, with Foxboro being one of the finalists to host
     the Women's World Cup (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/12).
