THE BEST OF BROADWAY: TALKS FOR FASTEST MAN II IN TIMES SQ

          Negotiations are "under way to stage" a race between
     Donovan Bailey and Michael Johnson as "a finale to this
     summer's Goodwill Games," according to Neal Travis of the
     N.Y. POST.  The race, for a purse that "could total more
     than" $5M, "would be staged on a track laid down in Times
     Square, and would be televised live around the world." 
     Agents for Johnson, Bailey and Goodwill-backer Ted Turner
     "are reportedly trying to line up major sponsors for the
     classic matchup," which would be a replay of their head-to-
     head race last June in Toronto (N.Y. POST, 4/27).
