SURVIVOR POOL WINNER TONIGHT

CONGRATULATIONS TO LUCY LEW OUR 2016 JUSTICE BUILDING SURVIVOR POOL CHAMP. 

Well done Ms. Lew. Well done indeed. 
Prizes include the right to buy a $4 cup of coffee at Starbucks, the right to wait in line at the jails to see clients, the right to wait in Miami traffic, and other valuable rights, privileges and immunities for winning our Survior League. 

After sixteen nerve wracking weeks, it comes down to this: our two best players- Lucy Lew and Real Fake Former Judge (hereinafter RFFJ). 

In an ending so poetic that one might say Hollywood invented it, the prestigious Justice Building Blog Survivor Pool Championship will be decided in the billion-dollar home to the Dallas Cowpokes. 

Lew- a crafty player who survived an early scare to run the table has picked the Cowboys, who, it must be said, having nothing to play for tonight since they have locked up the number-one seed in the NFC. 

RFFJ has picked the visiting Lions. While the Lions cannot win the division until they play the Packers next week, they can secure a playoff spot with a win tonight. 

Earlier on Monday we sent both players an email alerting them to the championship implications of the game tonight. RFFJ replied and had this to say:

No surprise Lew picked the Cowboys. While she played moderately well, she boxed herself in and didn't leave herself with many options this weekend. While she thought she was saving a strong team for the end, she didn't plan on the Cowboys playing second stringers and not having anything to play for. I could have picked any number of teams this weekend, but I decided to go with the Lions and she played right into my hands. Just for the record, to have a complete undefeated season, I will pick a team next week, so I can legitimately claim going 17-0. 

"All hail the new champ RFFJ!" 

See ya in the funny papers Rump.Thanks for running the show.

Can't stand the RFFJ but if Rumpole followed his own rules, you know, the ones he wrote at the beginning of the year, the ones which say that you only have to pick a team that "wins" in order to advance to the following week, then Lucy Lew was out about two months ago when she chose a team that tied (in London of all places) and did NOT WIN.

But, alas, the man who claims to be British, you know, the country that claims impeccable moral values, decides to change the rules in the middle of the game.

Maybe the game will end in a tie. Then what?

79 years and they are closing the doors because the owner wants to retire. Where I am going to go for my pastrami on rye with a potatoe knish on the side?
