     three-lawyer shops" are an "endangered species."  Spiegel:
     "Pushing the consolidations is the increasing role of
     corporate sponsorship. ... The big sports agencies offer
     their services to corporate clients looking to get
     themselves noticed by sports fans" (FORBES, 3/9 issue).
