          The U.S. Figure Skating Association "announced Monday
     that it will hold its 2002 world championships" at the
     Staples Center in L.A., according to Rick Orlov of the L.A.
     DAILY NEWS.  The site was selected over Portland [OR], Las
     Vegas, Seattle, Oakland, San Diego and Phoenix.  Staples
     Center GM Bobby Goldwater said that "admission will be
     priced to bring in the average" fan.  Orlov wrote that
     Staples Center officials "hope to land" the Grammys and have
     joined L.A.'s bid to host the 2000 Democratic National
     Convention (L.A. DAILY NEWS, 10/6).  Also in L.A., Randy
     Harvey reported that the L.A. Sports & Entertainment
     Commission is preparing bids for the 2001 NHL All-Star Game
     and the 2002 NBA All-Star Game.  Goldwater also has been
     contacted "about the possibility of bringing" an AFL team to
     the Staples Center in the summer of 2000 (L.A. TIMES, 10/6).
