COULD WINTER GRAVITY GAMES BE CONVINCED BY MOONLIGHT IN VT?

          CO ski resort towns of Breckenridge and Telluride, Mt.
     Snow and Killington in VT and Mammoth Mountain in CA have
     been named finalists to host the inaugural Winter Gravity
     Games.  The four-day alternative sports and music festival
     will air on NBC in February of 2000 (Gravity Games).
          OTHER NOTES: More than 350,000 tickets have been sold
     for the '99 FIFA Women's World Cup, for an average of 20,000
     for every game (17 dates) (THE DAILY).....ESPN.com's Jamie
     Trecker criticized the WWC for charging media members $15
     for parking passes per venue, per day.  Trecker, on the
     cost: "The idea of charging the media for a basic need such
     as admission to an event or a space to put your car is
     antithetical to the very kernel of sports journalism from a
     public relations point of view." More Trecker: "The idea of
     limiting that in any way is beyond absurd, especially for an
     event that, once again, needs publicity" (ESPN.com, 4/23).
