2007 US Open Receives ESPN Offer

First of all I would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year.

Iíve been fortunate to have been given the opportunity to have ESPN back in the building for the 2007, 2008, and 2009 U.S. Open 9 Ball Championships. All of these events will include Sunday final day action, the winners bracket match, semi-finals, and finals. They will be one hour shows plus reruns.

Needless to say, Iím very excited to have been given this offer. Thatís the good news.

I have until February 1st, 2007 to give Allen Hopkins and Matt Braun my answer. The only way for me to recoup is via sponsorship packages, commercials and banners.

So therefore, Iím sending this release out today hoping the phone rings from potential sponsors, inside and outside the billiard industry. My direct office line is 757-499-8958.

Thank you,
Barry Behrman

My guess would be that it is their production company that is doing the shows, similar to their other pool productions for ESPN. For example, the Tournament of Champions and the Trick Shot Championship.
