Default Fans calling for tickets get sex line

The Associated Press
Posted November 10 2004

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte Bobcats fans were in for a surprise if they dialed an NBA ticket number listed in a local phone book: Instead of getting seats, they were told to call a sex chat line.

The correct number -- (800) 4NBA-TIX -- was established by the league three years ago for tickets in any city, and it was listed correctly in the 2002-03 BellSouth White Pages, back when the city had the Hornets. But the number in this year's BellSouth book, released in September, lists a wrong toll-free number that refers callers to the sex line.

BellSouth and Bobcats officials said they learned of the glitch last Thursday.

"We certainly apologize to any of our fans who have been inconvenienced by this," said Chris Weiller, a team spokesman.

The NBA expansion team and BellSouth were unsure how the mistake happened. The Bobcats were trying to get the incorrect number rerouted to the team's direct line for tickets.
