UPDATE: Blog suicide pool update to be up tonight/early tomorrow hopefully. Working hard this rainy weekend but will find the 90 minutes before 1pm Sunday to get it up. Meanwhile, send in your picks. Good luck. Avoid the Cheaters (hahahahaha.)
Bad mixes: Superman and kryptonite, a judge and the check at lunch, Mitt Romney and compassion and reason, the Tea Party and, well, they don't get along with anyone, so it was a poor example. Oil and water.
Cops and defense attorneys.
And yet because of the forces of nature (and Miami City Hall) cops and defense attorneys have been thrown together in Lot 26 in a parking lot situation almost as explosive as the middle east.
Exhibit 1 is offered as a compound exhibit of two pictures of one police officer who believes s/he has every right to take up two spaces. The Justice Building Blog irregular who took these snapshots informs us that the offense occurred during a busy morning (Monday?).
Would the parking lot enforcement officers who patrol the lot have the wherewithal to have that offending truck towed?
There's as much a chance of that happening as criminal court judges who don't have a trial going volunteering to help their overburdened colleagues in civil. Somethings are just against the law of nature. It's not east to get a Friday 2pm tee-time at Riviera.
SUICIDE POOL: POOL B?
After last Sunday's massacre- 17 down on the Cheaters (boy does that still bring a smile to our face) we proposed a Pool B. A losers bracket. A second chance. Winner of that bracket plays winner of winners bracket.
We will do it if 20 or so of the 24 out in the first two weeks join in. A logistical nightmare for us. But we're altruists. Didn't you read our post the other day?
