Who Is The Miami Heat Cigar Guy? [UPDATE]

In the closing moments of last night's Game Four, the camera found a curious-looking fellow in the pricey seats wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt, sunglasses, and with a fat stogie in his mouth. It's the second time this week we've highlighted a Cigar Guy, and this one (who bears an uncanny resemblance to WFAN's Mike Francesa) just looks like someone we ought to know.


But who is he? Any ideas? Let us know.

Update (4:28 p.m.): Several readers let us know it's former Miami-Dade county manager Sergio Pereira, who in February was named one of the area's worst. His claim to fame? Resigning in disgrace in 1988 after a shady development deal straight out of a Carl Hiaasen novel.
