I'm sorry if this is a re post, but this got my ass burning up!

Make $100 the sleazy way
One man wants his stadium freebies, and he doesn't care who he has to sue to get them


MLB has supported breast cancer research for years. But no good deed goes unpunished.

Are you a male who'd like to make $100 the sleazy way? Then I have a deal for you, but you have to act by June 25.

Of course, you'll have to cash in your basic moral decency to do it and incur the wrath of every woman in your life -- including your mom -- and feel worse about yourself than Sanjaya's barber. But we're talking $100!

Here's how to do it, but I wouldn't let the wife read this:

It so happens that on May 8, 2004, the Oakland A's had a Mother's Day promotion. There was a fight-breast-cancer 5K run before the game, free mammograms and the first 7,500 women through the gate got floppy plaid sun hats from Macy's. Nice day for the ladies.

Except that last part really hacked off a man named Alfred G. Rava. He was incensed that men weren't getting a floppy plaid sun hat for Mother's Day. He was so mad about it that he sued.

It gets worse. He has nearly won. A judge has given preliminary approval to a $510,000 settlement -- roughly half to lawyers and the rest to the "victims" -- the poor, downtrodden gender-disadvantaged waifs like Rava who didn't get their floppy Mother's Day hats. This is where you come in.

If you can prove you were one of the first 7,500 people there that day, you get $50 in cash, two-for-one A's tickets and a $25 Macy's coupon. It won't be hard. All you have to do is (A) state under oath that you are a male, (B) show some kind of receipt for your ticket and (C) swear you were there early. That's good enough. There's no video, and nobody's going to spend $5,000 deposing you about $100.

"The entire settlement should be donated to the Breast Care Center at UCSF," says A's fan Ben Huber. "No good deed goes unpunished."

So how many guys have lined up to get their rightful floppy-hat-equivalent payment that was stolen from them by those selfish Mother's Day-manipulating women? "Well, I haven't taken a single call so far," said the 1-888 operator at the firm handling claims. "And I'm here just about every day."

A's fans are not just ignoring Rava in droves; they're pissed. "The entire settlement should be donated to the Breast Care Center at UCSF," says A's fan Ben Huber. "No good deed goes unpunished."

Isn't it good to know that most American males still have a spine? Save for (cough, cough) one.

Turns out Rava is a lawyer. In fact, this is not his first men-inism lawsuit. He's been part of more than 40 male anti-discrimination lawsuits, sometimes as the plaintiff, like in Oakland, and sometimes as the plaintiff's attorney. He has sued Club Med for a ladies-only promotion. He's sued the Angels for giving away a $1.45 tote bag to women in 2005. He has sued restaurants and nightclubs and theater companies. Mr. Rava gets incensed a lot.

Oh, and he doesn't even work in Oakland. He works in San Diego. Gee, I wonder what a sue-happy lawyer from San Diego would be doing at an A's-Twins game the very day that they were holding a women-only giveaway? I called and asked.

But Rava wouldn't say.

"Season-ticket holder?" I asked.

Rava wouldn't say.

"You went to a game on Mother's Day, to a game that was promoting breast cancer awareness, and you felt victimized by not getting a floppy plaid sun hat?"

Rava insisted it was a fishing hat.

And he thinks the fact he didn't get one is offensive. Not just to him, he says, but to the state of California, "which has a very strong policy against discriminating on the basis of sex."

"Dude!"

"Look," Rava says, "if ESPN were giving away free autographed Nolan Ryan baseballs to men only on Father's Day, would that be fair?"

"These weren't autographed baseballs. They were women's sun hats. Plaid, floppy sun hats."

Rava: "Fishing hats."

I'm surprised he didn't want his free mammogram, too.

Personally, I find Mr. Rava as odorous as a bag of dyspeptic hamsters. He's a greasy manipulator who has found a small leak in American law and stuck an open wallet under it. When they wrote California's Unruh Civil Rights Act in 1959 -- the act Rava cites in his suits -- they never thought soulless creatures like him would someday slink about the earth.

We are not a collection of legal briefs, appellate rulings and city ordinances. We are people. We are grandfathers and sisters and uncles and girlfriends, all woven into the fabric of this wonderful thing called sports. And if once in a while we want to do something nice for each other -- and not want anything for ourselves -- is that so wrong?

What are you going to do, sue?

Yes, Al Rava is going to sue and keep suing. What's next, Mr. Rava? Kids' Helmet Night? (Age discrimination!) Wheelchairs along the rail with a view? (Health discrimination!) Mullets Get in Free Day? (Clean-hair statutes!) Lawyers like Rava suck the fun out of everything.

What's amazing is that Rava's own mother died of breast cancer at age 53. How would she feel about his crass-action lawsuit?

"I am sure my mom would be proud of my lawsuit against this major league baseball franchise that denied male and female consumers under 18 years of age free fishing hats based on sex and age," he says.

Sun hats, tool.

At first I thought you were talking about one of the Chargers...
As for this lovely ambulance chaser, unfortunately this guy's ilk is everywhere. I would love to see a cartoon boulder fall on him and crush him like the cockroach he his, but alas...that only happens to poor Wiley Coyote. What was particularly interesting was his response to the query about his mother, what a douche. If he were really in this to see equality, would have simply put in a request to the charity involved to do future events giving the souveniers to everyone and in this case, say let's take the equivalent value of the hats not distributed and donate it to charity on behalf of the men who participated. But alas, what he is, is a scumbag sucking off charities. He's a real pile of dung...kind of like Chet in Weird Science..hmmm

Exactly.....any real person who has legitimate concern over equality or any sort of cause is not exploiting it for personal gain. The fact that he is willing to pocket money, instead of donating it to help fight a disease that killed his mother is beyond disgusting.

See, these are the type of people we should use for entertainment, like the Romans used to do. Have them swim with sharks, fight bears while wearing embarrassing tutus and pit them against each other with strange kitchen utensils.

hmm, swimming with sharks or gladiator events...interesting...might be cheaper then the regular death penalty...hmmm...

the tutu thing for some reason reminds me of bobo...also the strange kitchen utensils..

I hate to give raider fan credit, but as a devoted A's fan I'd like to point out that the other 40,000 people there decided this was scum baggery and didn't cash in, despite the overwhelming poverty in the area. Gotta be honest, I'd have thought that there would be a few more douche bags looking for a quick $100 bucks.

This is the tough side of being a free society. You've got to leave yourself open to these kinds of court actions, but then you hope that your citizens exercise the kind of moral and ethical responsibility not to indulge in this kind of frivolous bs. It's the difference between liberty and license. This lawyer doesn't get the distinction. Or he does, but doesn't give a **** because what's most important to him, is him.

Throat punch does more damage. I think they have to give the money away so why not (if you have time) ask to get the cash and donate it straight to breast cancer society. Not sure about the Macy Day card and 2 for 1 A's tickets (no one goes anyways). Now at Angels stadium, everyone over 18 gets Mother/Fathers Day gifts. I think if you have a Mother's Day, there should be a Father's Day giveaway also. Not sure if that is suitable in sue happy land. Giveaway should be as feminine as possible. Pink and fake flowers.

I don't care how bad a team we have, no childrens charity in the area would turn down free tickets to a MLB ball game.

I know what you mean. I got banned for a week of the ironic thing of ed Hochuli's email to give broncos fans an opportunity to give him kudos since he got so many death threats from your fans. I added and deleted some words so it wont work. Just tell us what to google next time and we can figure it out on our own to save from the wrath of Taco J. BTW: Khan does the same thing in that same week and just gets a warning. I guess I am on the lower fav poster of TJ compared to Khan.

It's not really personal info...if you google his name, it's on the first page. I use calbar's atty search all the time. The guy is a douche... a typical slimy Cal Western grad. The lawsuit doesn't bother me so much as his smarmy lies about the it having some greater purpose that to line his pockets. The A's can weather such a suit, but his similar actions against local small SD arts centers are really infuriating to me.

The Unruh Act doesn't really address a defendant's intent to discriminate, so until the legislature changes it, no ladies' nights!

I agree. Poor Fellow. I mean he deserves a good meal and really isn't that why he's chasing the roadrunner, he needs some food. Though I will say, you'd think by now he would stop buying ACME products...;D
