    “your comments about spiking footballs seem distinctly un-professorial”

    “your comments about spiking footballs seem distinctly un-professorial”

    In my post yesterday about the Wisconsin Supreme Court overturning Judge Sumi, I opined:

    This is a sweeping victory for Republicans and Gov. Scott Walker. (And for my prior legal anaylsis, but that’s another matter. I’ll be spiking the football, for sure.)

    ….

    Okay, analysis done, now I spike the football by referencing my prior posts…

    In response, I received this email (emphasis mine):

    Dear Professor Jacobson:

    Do you hail from Wisconsin (as I do)? I’m perplexed by your interest in Wisconsin constitutional and administrative law. Surely everybody else at Cornell could not care less.

    My views upon your espoused opinions aside, your comments about spiking footballs seem distinctly un-professorial, but I suppose matters of style are not for me to judge.

    Curiously yours, Professor _______

    Adjunct Professor
    U.C. Hastings College of the Law

    Reaction?

    Here’s mine:

    Ya see, this is what blogging does to the mind. It’s not my fault. I’m a victim.

    I agree with the professor from Hastings. You should absolutely not spike the football. Instead you should hold a nationally televised rally at Ground Zero, which no less an authority than our esteemed President has declared is not spiking the football.

    Dear Chicago Bears Wide Receiver:

    Do you hail from Wisconsin (as I do)? I'm perplexed by your interest in the Green Bay, Wisconsin, Packers' nickel and zone defenses. Surely everybody else on the Chicago Bears team could not care less.

    My views upon your offensive moves aside, your spiking the football after your touchdown scores seems distinctly un-professional football, but I suppose matters of celebratory style are not for a dork like me to judge.

    Quite curiously yours, Professor ___________.

    P.S. Please share this with your running backs, as I am pressed for time and still have yet to email at least a dozen more teams. Talk to you again next week !!

    LukeHandCool ( who thinks Professor Jacobson should print out adju-prof's email and frame it. Then, any time Professor J. is feeling down, he can just walk over to that framed email on the wall and have a good laugh).

    I regret to say that I have that Tiny Tim record.
