What They're Saying: Jerry Smith

“I walked in there and I’m trying to figure out which one is Brandi. I finally see her name and said, ‘Oh my gosh.’ I don’t think that looks too much like her.”

-- Brandi Chastain's husband Jerry Smith, the Santa Clara women's coach, about a bronze plaque dedicated to the former U.S. World Cup star that bore no resemblance to her. They were at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco on Monday night for ceremonies inducting her into the San Francisco Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame. Chastain said the plaque wasn't a "perfect representation," while Smith added that it was "really not flattering." Event organizers agreed on Tuesday to commission a new plague. (KTVU)
