    This is in the news.






    SANTA ANA, Calif. -- A Los Angeles man who was denied a red nylon tote bag during a Mother's Day promotion at an Angels baseball game has filed a sex and age discrimination lawsuit against the team.


    The class action claim filed by Michael Cohn alleges that thousands of males and fans under age 18 are entitled to $4,000 in damages each because they were treated unequally at last May's promotion.


    Women over 18 received the gifts.


    Angel officials said Cohn was the only person who complained about the giveaway and that the team is proud of its promotions.

    I don't think there are real grounds for this??

    IF honey boy can prove he was declined and IS a MOTHER well then that is discrimination!!

    To allow this would be the same as disputing ladies night at a club..
    I think the courts have addressed that..

    I love it! Where do they come up with monetary figures for this. How does $4,000 compute to the pain and suffering that this a$$ allegedly endured for not getting a nylon tote bag probably worth a couple of bucks????

    When sports teams stop giving promotional gifts to fans of any age or gender we will know who to thank.

    You're welcome bakerprune64. Without humour we humans could not deal with all the sadness and depair we see and hear about every day.

    It is( in my beliefs) a wonderful gift from God. And I just love witty, funnny people.

    Sorry folks, guess I got a bit off topic here.

    You have a great point there AeroFanRW. Stupid suits like this could lead to that down the road. That would be awful.

    I'm a S.F. Giants fan since I was a kid when they came to S.F. in 1958. I have countless give-aways from games I attended that I love because they bring memories and they're from my team.

    Oh my goodness, hats, pins, towels, bags, team member bobble-heads (I have two Willie Mays and Three Willie Mc Covey bobbles that are worth money but I couldn't part with any of them. ) And the list goes on and on.

    In fact, my daughters and I are going to the game tomorrow night and they're giving out black and orange wigs. (The Giants team colors). That'll be so much fun. Most the whole crowd sitting around in goofy wigs!
