    Las Vegas gets XFL team

     LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Las Vegas was awarded a franchise Wednesday in the Xtreme Football League, the new league owned by NBC and the World Wrestling Federation.
     
     "I think Las Vegas is an outstanding venue for the XFL," said Bill Hicks, the league's vice-president of administration. "It's a city that certainly has shown that it thrives on live events."
     
     The XFL will begin play in February, with teams also in New York; Los Angeles; Orlando, Fla.; Chicago; San Jose, Calif.; and Memphis, Tenn. Birmingham, Ala., also is expected to field a team.
