Bomb squad explodes briefcase before Heat game
Last Update: 5/9/2005 8:37:38 AM

MIAMI (AP) - A bomb squad exploded an unattended briefcase sitting next to a column near the entrance to Miami's AmericanAirlines Arena before the Heat-Wizards playoff game.

A bomb squad member wearing a 100-pound protective suit rigged the briefcase with a small explosive device. Once the aluminum case was blown open, police found audio equipment, most likely left by a news reporter.

The first arena employees were arriving for work about six hours before game time when police sealed off the area and diverted traffic in and out of the Port of Miami.

The squad detonates about 15 abandoned packages a month.

Probably some 12 year old kid, or just some non-fan trying to get attention.

It was probably Dan LeBatard. He's stupid enough to leave his briefcase behind.

It was probably an Atlanta fan. No fan fo Miami would want to do something like this. :cool:

How is that funny?

EDIT - don't answer. I won't be able to see it thanks to this handy feature called 'ignore'.

EDIT AGAIN - ahhhh..... that's better.
