          In Dallas, Kevin Blackistone wrote that with an
     attendance of "little more than 3,000" and a .8 rating on
     ESPN, "it is impossible to characterize" the inaugural TFA
     ProChampionships in NY "as a success" (See THE DAILY, 6/7). 
     But Blackistone noted that the league "looked to be on the
     ... right track," adding, "What the newfangled TFA did,
     after all, was imitate as best it could the successful pro
     sports leagues" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 6/9)....Last night's
     Mexico-Argentina soccer match in Chicago at the Reebok Cup
     drew "a sellout crowd of 64,433 to Soldier Field,"
     surpassing the stadium's previous soccer attendance record
     of 63,160 set in '94 (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 6/10).
