THE MOTOR CITY ROLLS TO NO. 1 IN THE SPORTING NEWS' RANKINGS

          THE SPORTING NEWS named Detroit its "1998 Best Sports
     City."  TSN Managing Editor Bob Hille cited the Red Wings'
     back-to-back Stanley Cups, the Univ. of MI's national
     football title and the number of star athletes in the area
     as reasons for Detroit's top status.  Judging criteria
     ranged from success of the teams to fan attendance, as well
     as the quality of the cities' stadiums and arenas, weather
     and ownership stability.  The complete list of the "Best
     Sports Cities" can be found at www.sportingnews.com.
     Rounding out TSN's top 10 sports cities are: (2) Boston; (3)
     Dallas-Ft. Worth; (4) Chicago; (5) Denver; (6) Phila.; (7)
     N.Y.; (8) Miami-Fort Lauderdale; (9) S.F.-Oakland-San Jose;
     and (10) Baltimore-Washington DC (THE SPORTING NEWS, 7/6).
