Special Labor Day Weekend Holiday Update below: Brennan Cleared! No FF league.
There are certain hallmarks to the end of summer. The sky turns a deep blue; there's the barest hint of fall in the air, and judges start returning from summer respites at their retreats in the South of France (or Hialeah Lakes) and trials scheduled long ago in April and May, when September was a whisper, now loom large on an attorney's calendar.
And then there is football and Rumpole's world famous, earth shaking, viagra-taking Survivor Pool. (Yup, we were at the Springsteen concert last week).
Hop in, the water's cool and inviting.
"How do I play?" you may be saying.
Piece of cake. It's so easy even those who wear black robes for a living can do it. Here are the rules.
1) Send an email to FBpool12@gmail.com. NOT to our regular email.
2) Include in the subject line "I used to be an ASA but I resigned because the work was too hard."
3) Every week send us ONE pick before the start of the games. If you miss the 1PM games, you can still pick a 4 PM or Sunday or Monday night game.
4) Once you use that team, you cannot use the team for the rest of the year. Point spreads do not apply. All you need to do is pick one team each week who will win.
Sounds sooooo easy. A piece of cake.
So roll up your sleeves, check the games, pick a winner and have fun.
Enjoy your holiday weekend (viagra or no viagra) and see you in court in about ten days (we don't ever fly home the day after a holiday. Too much hoi poloi in the airports and we don't mingle well.)
Judge Brennan cleared!
David Ovalle and the Herald story here. Close-out memo will be posted below after we overcome some technical difficulties and copyright issues. $2,500 restitution for a $225 windshield covers tax, tag, title, instillation, undercoating, delivery fee, storage fee, restocking fee, and interest and penalties.
No FF league. We don't have the time to run a fantasy football league- it's not like we wear a robe and show up to court an hour late and then continue everything. We work for a living. BUT....
If someone wants to set up a Justice Building FF league we will bless it, promote it, post the links and the results.
Also, we are thinking of creating a Draftkings League for our readers. Put your money where your mouth is.
