By now the Justice Building Football Suicide League is a tradition. Last year saw a record number of players complete for a title so prized, the mere thought of possessing it is enough to make contestants pour over football schedules for months in advance, searching for the slightest edge.
Now: BIG NEWS.
You've talked about it for years. The mere possibility that such a thing would exist has sent football loving blog readers into a frenzy. The possibility has now become a reality.
We are ready to announce, in addition to the beloved suicide pool......
We almost forgot.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY.
To all our readers who balance a legal career with the most important job in their life: being a dad, today we salute you.
It's your job to take your son or daughter fishing. Show them how to bait a hook, and teach them about catch and release. It's your job to oil their first baseball mitt, and to put an arm around them when they strike out to end the game. It's your job to buy them those comic books you read when you were a kid; to sneak them out of the house for an ice cream sundae before dinner, and to talk them about putting down the Ipad, turning off the TV and reading a book at night.
For the ten thousand and one things you will do to make a difference in your child's life: from going to the pharmacy at 3am to buy some more cough medicine, to driving their pals to and from the movies, with a stop at McDonalds on the way home, to the countless times you re-arranged your work schedule so you get to the baseball field or basketball court to coach the team, this is your day.
Happy Father's Day.
Our pick to win the US Open? Charl Schwartzel. Who are we rooting for? Our favourite golfer since the Golden Bear. Lefty. Phil Mickelson.
Oh, as to that big announcement? It can wait. Can't overshadow Father's Day you know.
