ELWAY AT THE ISUZU: John Elway leads the field for the
9th annual $500,000 Isuzu Celebrity Championship, July 10-12
at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. Other celebrities include
Mike Shanahan, Marcus Allen, Johnny Bench, Ivan Lendl, Jerry
Rice, Mike Modano and Mario Lemieux. TNT will televise
Friday's coverage, with NBC handling the weekend action.
This marks the seventh year that Isuzu has sponsored the
event, which is co-owned by NBC Sports and SMTI (Isuzu).
NOTE: In Hartford, Mark Pukalo reports that the adidas
soccer Summer League is "looking for a long-term home," and
the Hartford CT area "has made a strong pitch." The second-
year project brought nearly 100 top college soccer players
to CT for competition last year (HARTFORD COURANT, 6/25).
