The hoopla surrounding Steven Gerrard's farewell was deemed appropriate by some and regarded as maudlin and overblown by others, ie. the blasphemers.
Either way, the Liverpool supporters were keen to say their goodbyes. One autograph hunter was bold enough to try and focus Gerrard's mind on pastures new. Thrusting a LA Galaxy in front of the golden boy in Liverpool's inner sanctum was a daring, not so say reckless, move.
Gerrard treated the jersey with the much the same professional disdain as Rory McIlroy treated the tricolour that was thrown at him at the Congressional a few years back.
