Barry Bremen, a Detroit-area businessman whose fun-loving, gate-crashing stunts led him to shoot layups before NBA All-Star games, accept an Emmy Award for best supporting actress and flee from veteran baseball manager Tommy Lasorda, died of cancer at age 64.
Bremen told the AP he "retired" from gate-crashing because he didn't want to be mistaken for the real nuts, who run onto sports fields for attention or worse.
"They always have a good time pulling something off against the establishment," Bremen told The Associated Press in 1997. "That's why it's been so successful."
