It’s never too early to start looking for Festivus gifts. Underneath Their Robes has a fantastic suggestion:
Given today’s economy and the current reluctance of many to spend their hard-earned/non-existent bonuses on luxury goods, Clerquette suggests this stocking-stuffer for the sports fan-Groupie on your list: a membership in FantasySCOTUS.net, the newly minted Supreme Court Fantasy League. Recent law-school grad and self-described “big Supreme Court nerd” Josh Blackman created the site so that Groupies like you — like us, dear readers — can “play like the Tenth Justice.” The Rules, Blackman explains, are “simple.”In true appellate fashion, memberships fees are three-tiered; they range from free (for students and the unemployed) to $10. If you’re a betting man, woman, or Groupie, Clerquette says: Christmas has come early this year! Indulge! If you’re searching for a gift that will keep on giving — at least from October to late June/early July — look no further! FantasySCOTUS.net will keep your favorite groupie busy, away from productive activity, and unable to engage in telephone conversations while formulating bets for months to come. Hey: at least there’s no draft.
