FRANCHISE NOTES

          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).
