So you want to be a blogger in South Florida? Is it the glitzy lifestyle? The admiration from your colleagues (and scorn from the bench) that attracts you? Is it the recognition you get at all the best restaurants and VIP seating at the hottest clubs?
Well, here are the qualifications:
1) You must be able to access the internet with minimal problems;
2) You have to have an original thought in your head;
3) You should never split your infinitives, especially when heading without clear head to court (see, that was a split infinitive);
4) Your bench warrants should be cleared;
Apply within. A demanding fall and winter trial schedule (and a federal judge who clearly could not give a damn) lead us to believe that the next several months will see an unfortunate increase in our workload and corresponding decrease in our blogging availability.
But fear our busy schedule not because the famous REGJB Suicide Pool returns again!
To Play: Send us an email from an email address you want to use to FBpool12@gmail.com.
Last year's Champion, the now Honorable Miguel De La O, is already doing a little bit of "Miami Heat repeat" trash talking.
We have already sent out invitations to last years players. If you played last year and didn't get an invitation: 1) check your spam box; 2) did you change email addresses? Either way, send us an email to FBpool12 and ONLY FBpool12@gmail.com and you're in. We will send you a reply email confirming your participation and your not-legally binding agreement to pose for a picture wearing one of two hats: The new and infamous "I went out first in the Blog Football Pool" Cap along with the winner wearing the new and famous "Justice Building Football Pool Champ 2013" Cap.
We continue negotiations with various on-line merchants to run our heralded Fantasy Football league. It would help if some altruistic reader would volunteer to be commissioner of this league, which is shaping up to be full of malcontents, ruffians, miscreants, and other respected legal professionals.
Labour day is fast approaching and we have the perfect read for that long, lazy weekend in the hammock by the sea:
"The First Tycoon" by T.J, Stiles. If you thought you knew about the amazing life of Cornelius Vanderbilt, you don't know the half of it.
And we recommend again "The Yard" by Alex Grecian as a great page turner-Scotland Yard thriller- circa 1885.
Second to last weekend of the summer. Time to dig out those sweaters and caps for the brisk fall weather. Enjoy.
See You In Court.
