Bonner haircut boy scores Spurs tix
SAN ANTONIO (AP)
Patrick Gonzalez was suspended for a day from Woodlake Hills Middle School because the district deemed his $75 haircut a distraction. He returned to class Thursday after reluctantly shaving his head.
Gonzalez says Bonner is his favorite player, noting they're both redheads.
Bonner, whose mother is a teacher, says the school could have just moved Gonzalez to the back of the room. Bonner sent Gonzalez a message, saying: ''Keep supporting us redheads in the NBA.''
Gonzalez's story prompted the Spurs to give him and his family tickets to Thursday's playoff game against ... the Clippers.
