BEARS AND 'FINS MAY MOVE TO MONDAY IF MARLINS GO ALL THE WAY

          The Dolphins are scheduled to host the Bears at Pro
     Player Stadium on Sunday, October 26 -- the same day the
     Marlins could host "the deciding seventh game of baseball's
     World Series," according to Michael Hirsley of the CHICAGO
     TRIBUNE.  An NFL spokesperson said that if the Marlins do
     reach the World Series, and it goes seven games, the Bears-
     Dolphins game will be moved to Monday night, and there would
     be two "MNF" games on ABC.  The Bears-Dolphins game would be
     shown in the Chicago market, pre-empting the regularly
     scheduled Packers-Patriots "MNF" game.  The Miami market
     would get the Bears-Dolphins game only if it is a sellout. 
     Hirsley notes that this has happened once before, in '87
     when the Cardinals-Twins Game Seven moved the Broncos-
     Vikings game to Monday.  ABC's regular broadcasting team of
     Al Michaels, Frank Gifford and Dan Dierdorf will be in New
     England on October 27, and a backup team would be assigned
     to the Bears-Dolphins game (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/9).
