Alcohol + Alabama Football = Attempted Murder?

I hope the dude spends a lot of his prison time ordered to miss Albama football on TV and thinking about how stoopid he is.

Yeeesh.

When Sports are taken to seriously . . .

"people use those guns they have laying around supposedly for protection."

When driving your car is taken to seriously ...

"people use those guns they have laying around supposedly for protection."

When teenagers take social isolation to seriously ...

"people use those guns they have laying around supposedly for protection."

When work is taken too seriously ...

"people use those guns they have laying around supposedly for protection."

When an argument between spouses or significant others is taken too seriously ...

"people use those guns they have laying around supposedly for protection."

I think the judge ruled that he could only watch Auburn football from now on. I understand that is the worst Alabama state court penalty there is ;)

*and I am NOT sorry Auburn fans.

Skel, don't you live in the SOUTHERN hemisphere? :)
Southerners in the southern hemisphere are actually northerners. It's based on distance from the equator. Perhaps he is a northernern?

I live near the 40º South Latitude parallel... (a bit north from it). That's the same distance from the equator than NYC or mabye Philly.(more or less...)

BTW I meant USA southerners :p

And yet I understand from a land use law prof I once had that there is a strong and serious movement amongst NZ geographers to have it declared and accepted globally that the southern hemisphere is actually north, and vice versa.

JNL, a little help here?

Bonus for Otterpop: Name that lawyer/prof!

Most of us are insane in an endearingly quirky way. Football addicts are a whole 'nother story...

How about a state of football fanatics. There is no OFF season for a Cheese Head, there are only changes in the different phases of the season :) No breaks :)

Such as:
Training Camp Season
Regular Season
Draft Season

I know that. Just a little inter-hemispheric ribbing.

Of course, doesn't South America have insane soccer fanatics (Argentina and Brazil in particular) and a "sport" in which Andean men drink themselves silly on potato liquor and then beat each other senseless-a central part of many village fiestas?
