The Buffalo Bills missed a pass for a touchdown, so they lost a game in 1970, so they to get the first pick in the draft, and got O.J. Simpson. OJ stays in Buffalo for awhile, meets his wife, allegedly then kills her. He hires the Kardashian's father as lawyer. They win, making the Kardashians slightly famous. Then Kim has a sex tape.

Submission + - Malibu Media stay lifted, motion to quash denied

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: In the federal court for the Eastern District of New York, where all Malibu Media cases have been stayed for the past year, the Court has lifted the stay and denied the motion to quash in the lead case, thus permitting all 84 cases to move forward. In his 28-page decision (PDF), Magistrate Judge Steven I.

We went into the house, then back out a short time later.  My friend "I told you so...".
There was the club, sitting on the seat, no damage to the steering wheel, none to the club.
The club was still locked, and, as far as I could tell, just as it was when I put it on while discussing it's goodness.
