FROM THE X FILES: BROWN WANTS SUMMER GAMES IN SAN FRANCISCO

          S.F. Mayor Willie Brown "wants to lay claim" to the X
     Games, and "is pulling out all stops to land" them in his
     city in '99 and 2000, according to Chuck Finnie of the S.F.
     EXAMINER.  Brown said the X Games are "what the young people
     are into.  Skateboarding, rock climbing, oddball sports that
     attract people from all over the world."  Brown named Kofi
     Bonner, his chief economic advisor, to work with police and
     city officials to "whip together a formal bid" for the games
     by next month.  Other cities in the running to host the next
     two Summer X Games include St. Petersburg, Providence,
     Denver and Seattle (S.F. EXAMINER, 5/19).
