The Goldman Boys -- Just Happy to Be Here

1/16/2010 2:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The New Jersey Nets are by far the worst team in the NBA, but there were two fans in the crowd last night that didn't care about wins and losses -- David and Sean Goldman.

Sean Goldman, David Goldman

David Goldman (left) was recently reunited with his son Sean (right) after a five-year custody battle with his deceased ex-wife's family in Brazil.

Next time try a Devils game, fellas -- you might see the home team win a game.

This was a heartwrencher for way too long. It was wonderful for David to gain custody of Sean of Christmas Eve. Very symbolic!
As far as his expenses. I read that he spent $500K which included 15 trips to Brazil over the 5 years. The Brazilian family has never had Sean's best interests in mind. From refusing David's contact with his son, returning his mail to exposing Sean to a crushing crowd by parading him down the street for their own selfish purposes. Hopefully, Sean will adjust as quickly as possible and David will now beable to show his son what the word "love" really means through word and action.

Ok,who cares?This guy is a nobody,and the boy is just a common boy with a pathetic life and living with a pathetic father.David didn't do anything special to be shown here.He isn't famous,isn't a celebrity,isn't rich or a heir and is a nobody.
Why are they in this site?Are they here for lack of important news or gossips?They are irrelevant,aren't even famous and didn't even do something important to be here.
Why should i care about a nobody watching a stupid football game with the son?Both are nobodies,boring and nobodies...?Who cares about them?I don't.Please,stop showing them,they aren't even relevant enough to be here.Just two common and boring people.

The nasty selfish grandparents need to be soaked for all the legal bills that have accrued in this horrible fight. What the grands did was just plain wrong, I am glad sense finally prevailed and Sean was returned to his rightful place with his father.

I am so happy for them! Finally they are back together as a family, like they should be. I cried when I watched the special which just aired on tv. So cruel what that Brazilian family put David Goldman through. May David and Sean have a lifetime of happiness, they deserve it! May 2010 be a wonderful year for you!

I am from Brazil and live in the US for the past 14 years. I have a 5 year old son and his father after 20 years living in the US decided to move back to Brazil. It is not easy to share custody when the other parent is so far, however it is the right thing to do. Once a year, I take my son to see his father, and then the next year it is his turn to come and see him. Unfortunately, Brazil is a place where everything is possible and you are not accountable for you actions.

To the Brazilian that posted "why we care so much about it." We care because it was the most selfish and unethical act a female can do to a man. We care because regardless of socio-economic status, political ties and selfrighteousness, Mr. Goldman stood up, lead and made a difference. He is the boy's biological father(who's son was kidnapped and sent to your county)and has the right to care for him, grow with him and be his DAD. God bless David Goldman!!!! HE is a HERO.
