The Best of Constitutional Humor

16 March 2010

Expect this decision to be blogged about at length in the near future.  In the meantime, though, enjoy this footnote in reference to “the majority’s Hail Mary argument”:

In football, a Hail Mary is a last-minute desperation pass, the most famous being Doug Flutie’s, then a quarterback for Boston College, in a game against Miami in 1984. Sports analogies describing judging appear to be all the rage these days. Some have merit. Others, especially some involving baseball, clearly do not.

Fun, extraneous fact: I was friends with the writer’s grandson back in the day.
