Dear Friends of Judge Manny Crespo:
On my return to Criminal I managed, with the kind help of the AOC, to move into Chambers 625 and Courtroom 6-1—Judge Manny Crespo’s Chambers and Courtroom. I have an 11” by 8” picture of Judge Manny which I have placed in all my assigned courtrooms. However, I would like to give it a more permanent residence by hanging it in the “Crespo Courtroom”.
Aracely, Manny's wife, and Manny Jr. have agreed to help me with the task and we’ll be hanging it up on Tuesday, February 3 at 8:15 AM. Coffee, cafecitos, pastelitos and pastries will be provided.
You are invited.
Roberto M. Pineiro
Now on to the Super Bowl.
These are the moments in which a quarterback's character becomes forged, dare we say it, in steel. Down by 3. Two minutes and thirty five seconds left in the game. First down yields a holding penalty. Second and twenty and about 90 yards for the win, 65 yards for a chance at at a tie. Montana did it. Eli Manning did it. Steve McNair fell a yard short. And now add Ben Roethlisberger to the storied names of Super Bowl winning quarterbacks who have driven the length of the field with two minutes left to win the game.
It doesn't get any better than what we saw yesterday.
The Cardinals gave the Steelers everything and more, and with the heart of a champion the Steelers took the best shots the Cardinals had to give, and answered. Both teams should be proud. It was a great game.
