Sports Illustrated Cover Is Sweet
I read the article today in print at the Long Beach Public Library as my kids did their homework, while my wife looked at gardening magazines, before going to son's baseball practice. Beat that for a day.
It's late, and I am going strictly from memory. The writer was hilarious, comparing Judge Reggie Walton to an All-Star Game manager, late in the game, running out of players. Judge Walton could only send 2 of the 3 jurors who fell asleep home, the writer says, because like the manager, he was running out of alternate jurors.
The writer also said the jurors falling asleep epitomizes how the general public feels about the case, i,e. tired of it.
I'm not tired of it. The Rocket is on trial for perjury in a United States Federal Courthouse.
