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).
