TRIAL: What the meaning of INCLUDE is

According to Saturday's Chicago Tribune-Times of Los Angeles:

In his opening statement, Angel co-counsel Todd Theodora cited provisions of the lease that grant the team "sole discretion" over marketing and said the new name -- the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim -- satisfies the clause requiring the team name to "include the name Anaheim therein."

Theodora told jurors the clause did not guarantee that Anaheim would be prominent in the team name, would be the first word in the name or would be the only city in the name, pointing to the word "include."

"The ordinary English meaning," he said. "Nothing magical."

Sounds simple enough.
