When you go to an event with this many people, stuff happens. That's a reasonable presumption, counselor. I predict that this lawsuit will get thrown out.

I agree...GIVE ME A BREAK. If you look at someone wrong these days they sue. Gotta love the lawyer..."IT'S A TRAVESTY!". Can you get a little more dramatic?????

I saw it and I am traumatized also. I've been stranded in the combat zone. I need to sue. Honesty is such a lonely word. I can't sleep at night. I broke out in acne. I don't know about his wife, She's got a way about her. I am having nightmares of the Mets winning the World Series. I heard her husband saying to the security guards "You might have heard I run with a dangerous crowd," just before he started crying.

Is there an attorney out there that wants my case? One of the attorneys in the stands was trying to get Mr Siegel his business card, while yelling "Easy money Maybe just this time Oh maybe tonight Easy money."

Oh my heavens, the vision of Mr Siegel in handcuffs had me saying I am in Shea Stadium, and I'm in a New York state of mind.

Poor Mr Siegel has been saying "Everybody's got a million questions," I'm so confused.

Bryan and Wendy Siegel suing, wow, what a surprise!
