Which fans are more idiotic Alabama’s or Texas’?…

ALABAMA

Alabama lawyer wants a case held over until after the BCS Championship game

Comes now Jon B. Terry, as one of the attorneys for the Defendants and would move to

continue the current trial setting of January 4, 2010 and as grounds therefore would aver as

follows:

[…]

4. Most of the attorneys representing all of the named Defendants have tickets and reservations to be in Pasadena on the 6th day of January, 2010, which date would conflict with the trial date as travel times and schedules for the game overlap the trial as currently set.

5. In fact, the Honorable Jim Lloyd has children that live in the area and is scheduled to be with them in California to celebrate the game and the Tide s success.

6. Attempts to resolve this conflict directly with the Plaintiffs has been unfruitful as the reply has been that they are for the other great team in this State who did not make the playoffs. Unfortunately, that response remains short-sighted as they may one day find themselves in the same position that the Defendant attorneys are in and, unfortunately, the BSC Title Game is no longer scheduled on January 1st, but has been moved to January 7th.

[…]

considering the magnitude of this event and its impact on this State, and the fact such an event only comes infrequently during a person’s lifetime and is an achievement of such a magnitude that all involved in this litigation should want everyone to fully participate in this achievement.

9. ROLL TIDE!! ( although my secretary is for the other great team of this State, she feels that I need to attend this championship game!); and may the Longhorns be defeated.

Not everyone is amused…

It was granted.

This is after UA and Tuscaloosa wanted to cancel class for the game

TEXAS

A loser wants a whore for the BCS Championship Game

This ticket is for a classy hottie that will accompany me to the game.

I have a Suite for the 6th and 7th at the Langham, Huntington Hotel and Spa in Pasadena. http://pasadena.langhamhotels.com/en/

All expenses are paid for: flight, food, alcohol, hotel, and ticket.

The suite is a california king size bed so you must be fine with sharing a bed with me while you are staying in Pasadena.

I’m looking for anyone that is a true orange blood, and knows how to party and have a good time.

Must send pictures and must be a girl. No Guys.

I had reserved this for my girlfriend and I but she recently broke up and with me and I would like to take another girl.

Please only email me if you’re serious and bikini shots are preferred (or something sexier).

Who is more idiotic? I think it’s about equal.


CJ Grisham Legal Fund still needs your help…

THIS IS NOT OVER

The Huntsville City Council and the Huntsville City Schools Board of Education both meet Thursday night (Dec 17).  Each of these bodies has the power and duty to help make this right.  The City needs to ensure that Police do not chill Freedom of Speech.  Plus I expect the HPD to apologize to Master Sergeant Grisham for their actions during the PTA meeting and for their unacceptable response to his complaint.  The Board of Education needs to apologize to Master Sergeant Grisham for trying to destroy his career.  The Board also needs to investigate the Schools’ actions and take corrective actions.

Board member Jennie Robinson should use tomorrow’s meeting to either fulfill her promise to call for Superintendent Moore’s resignation or explain how being lied by the Administration is now acceptable.

I would bet they completely ignore this matter.


No one wants a prison.

The city planning commission is recommending that future prisons and halfway houses be restricted to industrial zones that are at least 500 feet from the nearest home, school, church, day care center, bar or liquor store.

But council members Richard Showers, Bill Kling and Will Culver have problems with the idea, which primarily affects land north and west of downtown.

That includes property near the Toyota engine plant and along Stringfield Road in Showers’ district; around the airport, County Line Road and Greenbrier Road in Culver’s district; and around the landfill in Kling’s district.

But luckily there isn’t one coming.

Mayor Tommy Battle said if the city has no zoning rules in place when the moratorium expires next Wednesday, a private company could build a re-entry facility virtually anywhere or even buy an apartment complex to house former inmates.

“If there are going to be re-entry corrections facilities,” Battle said Wednesday, “our intent is that they’re in places where there are buffers away from residential areas.”

“We don’t have knowledge of someone sitting in the wings waiting to come in, but we do know this area has been looked at.”
