VIKINGS: San Antonio business exec Red McCombs, on his interest in the Vikings: "Why I am I interested in Minnesota? Because that's where the team is. There aren't many teams, and this is one that's for sale, and this is one that I believe has great potential. But I have absolutely no thought that the Vikings should be anywhere but Minnesota. Do I see that they have some problems, some obstacles? Yes. Somehow, they are going to have to enter the era of new facilities" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 6/18). ...Former Vikings QB Tommy Kramer "would like to play a role in the Vikings organization" if his friend McCombs successfully bids for the team 1 (STAR TRIBUNE, 6/18)....In Minneapolis, Jerry Zgoda reports that members of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission "endorsed" T- Wolves Owner Glen Taylor as their pick to become the Vikings' next owner (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 6/18). NOTES: In Baltimore, last night's crowd of 48,269 was the largest for a regular-season game in Camden Yards history, and the 144,318 total for the Yankees-O's series was the best ever for a three-game series (SUN, 6/18). ...Pat Croce yesterday said he had reached a handshake deal with 76ers Chair Ed Snider to return as team president (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 6/18)....The NHL Kings will unveil new uniforms Saturday. One of the models is Patrick Warburton -- Puddy on NBC's "Seinfeld" (L.A. TIMES, 6/18).
