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).
