Two estranged organizations sparring over rights to start the nation's first women's pro soccer league got engaged yesterday, veering onto a new, common course toward a marriage of, at least, convenience. The inexperienced, but wealthy and, thus far, shrewd Women's United Soccer Association, founded by Bethesda cable TV mogul John S. Hendricks, and 5-year-old Major League Soccer, the more seasoned, but financiallystressed, media-craving men's league, announced their intended union in a national teleconference.

WASHINGTON - Hundreds of thousands of Washington Redskins fans could miss the opening of their team's 4:15 p.m. game tomorrow because the local CBS affiliate must televise the earlier-starting Ravens game in its entirety if the game remains close. It is an unusual scenario - the Ravens potentially pre-empting the larger-market Redskins on their own turf - that has Redskins fans aghast. "Can you believe it?" one Redskins fan wrote on EXTREMESKINS.com, a team-owned chat board. Another fan wrote, "The Ravens need to lose early and fast."

Los Angeles -- With David Letterman's CBS debut six weeks away and only about two-thirds of the network's affiliates across the country signed on to carry him live, CBS executives are finally starting to admit that things haven't gone exactly as planned since they signed Letterman in January for three years at $42 million."

PHILADELPHIA - Need extra tickets to the Women's World Cup? Shannon Boxx won't be using hers because something more important has come up: She's playing in the games. After one game, in fact, she's become something of a star, scoring the insurance goal in the Americans' 3-1 victory over Sweden in Sunday's opener. For tonight's second match against Nigeria at Lincoln Financial Field, Boxx again will be starting alongside some of soccer's biggest names - Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, Julie Foudy, Joy Fawcett - on the sport's biggest stage.

I'LL ADMIT IT, I fell victim to the hype. On the day "The Early Show," made its debut I got up earlier than usual and walked the dog. Then I rushed home and planted myself in front of the TV.When the clock struck 7, I expected to see Bryant Gumbel go head-to-head against "Good Morning America" and his former colleagues, Matt Lauer and Katie Couric on the "Today" show. At first, I wasn't too concerned when Don Scott and Marty Bass hung around past 7; I thought they'd eventually fade away. They didn't.

ABC yesterday fended off CBS, NBC and Fox at the clubhouse turn and won the race to keep telecasts of the Triple Crown on the network through the end of the century going away.In completing the deal before its exclusive negotiating period ran out at the end of the month, ABC managed to bring all three races -- the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont -- under one roof for the purpose of selling ads and to obtain the rights to control and market corporate signage at each event.The contract, which extends through the year 2000, marks the first time that the rights to all three races have been sold together, signaling the latest "partnership" between a network and a rights holder.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Five days before the start of the event that was to provide a needed boost to the 3-year-old women's professional soccer league, its board of governors announced yesterday that a lack of funding had forced the league to suspend operations. John Hendricks, founder of the Women's United Soccer Association and its board chairman, said he hoped the suspension would provide enough time "to allow a miracle to happen." But chances the league will revive appear minimal. "It's definitely a sad day for women's sports," said Julie Foudy, co-captain of the U.S. women's national team and a WUSA governor.

Impressions can be immediate as well as lasting. Thori Bryan, the central defender from the reigning Women's United Soccer Association champion San Jose CyberRays, makes both rather effectively. The Joppatowne High grad, formerly Thori Staples, relies on her speed and athleticism to shut down opposing attacks. One other thing is certain: She's always going to be back there. Always. Bryan, 28, has the distinction of being the only player in the WUSA to have played every minute of her team's games since the league's inception last year.

WASHINGTON - The new Women's United Soccer Association stepped onto the national sports stage yesterday with the Washington Freedom facing the Bay Area CyberRays in an inaugural game that was more than a game. It also was Washington's Mia Hamm going up against Bay Area's Brandi Chastain - two of the league's most prominent figures. Ironically, and fittingly, the afternoon's historical debut in front of 34,148 soccer enthusiasts at RFK Stadium had Hamm and Chastain isolated at the right wing in the game's decisive moment.

The U.S. women's national team, which captured America's attention when it won the 1999 Women's World Cup, has chased down another dream, this time bringing along friends. It's called the Women's United Soccer Association. The first women's professional soccer league in the United States, the WUSA will kick off its inaugural season at 2 p.m. today when Mia Hamm and the Washington Freedom get a visit from Brandi Chastain and the Bay Area CyberRays at RFK Stadium. Unlike most start-up leagues, this one has a fast head start.
