aren't we getting a little ahead of ourselves here?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last week, you'll know that the Chicago Bears are playing the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship this Sunday. Chances are, if you've flipped through the sports pages or watched ESPN during that time frame, you'll also know that New Orleans has never had a team go this far in the playoffs. (And unless you were cryogenically frozen since about August 2005 and were just unfrozen yesterday, you also know that the Saints had to play elsewhere last season because of Katrina, that New Orleans was pretty much destroyed, etc. etc. etc.)

So some lawyers down in New Orleans have a trial set for Monday. And they're thinking that, not only is Rex Grossman going to play like Rex Grossman and cause the Saints to win, but that the parties in New Orleans will last well into Tuesday. In order to have a full jury pool, they've requested that the trial date be moved to Wednesday. (Of course, if you read between the lines, it pretty much says that the defendants and defense counsel will be too blitzed after the Sunday afternoon game to show up in court Monday morning.

I mean, it's nice that they're being optimistic about the Saints' chances here (which, let's face it, are good, on account of Rexy and all). I personally enjoy how their priority here is football, not being a lawyer 24-7-365. My kind of lawyers.

I wonder if they're hiring.
