AUSTRALIAN APPLICATION: COUNTRY TO PURSUE 2006 OR 2010 CUP

          Australian soccer authorities made a formal application
     to host the World Cup in 2006 or 2010.  England, Germany and
     South Africa have also made bids for 2006 (USA TODAY, 7/9).
          NOTES: In Toronto, Josh Rubin reported that TSN has
     averaged 3.5 million visits per day on its Web site during
     the World Cup.  The previous single-day high was 2.8 million
     during last year's NHL trade deadline.  Canadians rank fifth
     in terms of orders placed on the World Cup online store,
     behind the U.S., U.K, France and Japan (TORONTO STAR, 7/8).
