Area man surprised to learn NBA playoffs are over

OAKLAND, CA -- Todd Brauerstein was surprised Thursday to learn that the NBA playoffs were indeed over, and had been since June. "Oh really?" said the fairly oblivious Brauerstein, "I had no idea. The Heat, huh? Wow, good for Shaq."

Asked how he could have possibly thought the NBA playoffs were still going in October, he replied, "Well, I stopped paying attention about half-way through the second round. I figured I would hear about it when the Finals ended, but I must have missed it."

Brauerstein continued his explanation by saying that he thought the NBA playoffs were too long, and, as evidenced, he has a hard time maintaining interest through the end.

The news was broken to Brauerstein in the breakroom at his office, a small accounting firm. His coworkers weren't surprised to learn Brauerstein was in the dark.

"Todd's pretty clueless about most sports," said a coworker who wished to remain anonymous. "He kept saying he was sure the Clippers were gonna win it all."

Brauerstein's coworkers are preparing to inform him about the results of the Little League World Series, Arena Bowl XX, and the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
