"My suggestion is that the judge get a pair of scissors, cut the thing in half and give half to each. It's certainly not anything that we would ever want to have happen and certainly not anything that
David [Beckham] or any of our players who hand out jerseys would have intended."
-- Los Angeles Galaxy President Alexi Lalas
upon learning that the parents of two boys
have hired lawyers and threatened lawsuits in a battle over the jersey David Beckham
gave one of the boys after the Galaxy's game in Honolulu in February. The two boys, friends ages 9
and 10, brought a sign greeting Beckham to Aloha Stadium. Beckham gave his shirt to the 9-year-old, but parents of the 10-year-old say he deserves it because he held the sign the entire game. (Honolulu Advertiser)
