RICHARD BARON: You know him as an incredible lawyer, great guy, charitable fellow. Gives his time and money and talent to worthy causes. And now: FANTASY FOOTBALL LOSER.
The following is an email we received from Mr. Baron, paying off his bet to the Honorable Miguel De La O, who is the Justice Building Blog's reigning fantasy football champion. Baron and De La O faced off in the Fantasy Football Finals in the Blog league. This blog post recognizing Hizzoner accomplishment is long over due.
From Richard Baron:(this is how he looked just after finding out he was beaten by Judge De La O)
First, trying not to sound ingratiating, I LOVE the BLOG! It’s clever, insightful, intellectual and funny. I can only imagine the time you spend putting it together, so thank you for my evening fixes.
This email is long overdue. I had a small wager with Judge De La O as he and I were in the finals of the fantasy football league you ran. My team was noprobablecause. I really thought I’d take that trophy away from his Honor, and our bet was the loser posts a comment on the blog about the winner’s incredible ability to pick fantasy football teams. So here goes:
I am a very poor loser. I don’t like losing motions or hearings and I hate losing trials. But even more than losing in the world of jurisprudence, I REALLY hated losing the final game in my only fantasy football league. And I lost to a perennial winner, the most honorable Migel de La O. I really like the Judge; both personally and as a Jurist. But I can’t stand that he continues to place so high in these leagues. He doesn’t even look like he knows the difference between a quarter back and a cheerleader. But does he ever know how to pick the winners in fantasy football. So here’s to you Judge De La O; You’re the best fantasy football league player in all of REG and I for one stand up and cheer you for knowing the difference between a quarterback and a cheerleader.
You can email Richard to further discuss his loss at Richardbaronfantasyfootballloser@gmail.com. Judge De La O has graciously set up the account and will monitor it for a while.
