FROM THE X FILES: BROWN WANTS SUMMER GAMES IN SAN FRANCISCO
Published May 21, 1998
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).
