"I want to be a sentencing expert"
Now I can retire happy because, as I was watching ESPN2 this morning with my cup of joe, I got to see both Mikes on Mike & Mike in the Morning make fun of me as a "sentencing expert." Specifically, Mike Greenberg started talking about my assessment of Bonds' likely sentence if convicted by asking "where'd he get this job?" Greeny went on to say, "I want to be a sentencing expert," and Mike Golic followed up by saying "That's the job to have!"
Okay, Mikes, here is an offer: Both Mikes have an open invitation to have my job (and salary) for a day or even a week if I can have either of their jobs (and salary) for even a few hours. Heck, I'll forgo the salary part if they'll just invite me to hang out at ESPN's studios for a little while.
For more serious analysis of Barry Bonds' indictment, How Appealing collects coverage here.

You never answered the question: "Where'd he get this job?" Monstertrak, perhaps?

It really amazes me how non-lawyers have no idea how lawyers (and professors) get where they are.

The problem is, Doc, the Mike and Doug show would focus exclusively, as near as I can tell, on the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Cleveland Indians. Might make their show a bit more parochial. :)
OTOH, it might liven up the sentencing conversation, or at least reduce the reliance on academic jargon. I'd love to see a one week job swap.
Also, lately I've come to realize there's room in the blawgosphere for an exclusively dedicated Sports and the Law blog. I don't know of one - if somebody does please turn me on to it - but these issue recur with enough frequency to constitute their own bloggerly beat, for sure, at this point.
