          Seville, Spain, "announced its intention to bid" for
     the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, and did it at the gathering
     of the Association of National Olympic Committees, which
     began yesterday -- in Seville, according to Ashante Infantry
     of the TORONTO STAR.  The announcement was a "surprise
     move," as IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch is from
     Barcelona, which hosted the '92 Games.  That same year,
     Seville was the site of the World Expo.  Toronto bid Chair
     David Crombie: "There's been talk of lots of cities, but I
