Happy HuckTheFuskerVersary

It has been a really long week - and candidly it should not really have been so.  I have been on trial all week in Hudson County - performing the functional equivalent of being a fly on the wall while the two attorneys representing the target defendants have put on a show.  You are never too old or too experienced to learn something new.  That is especially true in the business of trying cases.  I have no idea what the jury is going to do - they likely will not get the case until Wednesday - but this week has been akin to attending a CLE Seminar.  Great stuff.  Really great.
Today is the twenty-seventh anniversary of one of the greatest sporting events I have ever attended:  the 1986 upset that the Buffs sprung on the nationally-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers.  The Buffs had not defeated the Huskers at home - and back then we played them every year - since Dwight Eisenhower was in the White House.  For the American History-challenged among us that was a really, really long time ago.  And on one simply splendid October afternoon twenty-seven years ago, it all changed. 
The streak ended....
....and bedlam ensued.
Man, twenty-seven years is a long, long time.
