Let The Good Times Roll
In an interview on the FAN before last night's
"We've just gotta get on a nice little roll."
So, following yet another excruciating loss last night, lawyer that I am, I went down to the courthouse first thing this morning an filed an emergency motion for an injunction. Fortunately, it was granted. Here are the conditions:
1. Willie Randolph is hereby prohibited from uttering the phrase "nice little roll" in any manner, fashion, or context.
2. In the event that Mr. Randolph is asked what he ate with his steak the night before, he may only reply "a small, tasty bun."
3. In the event that Mr. Randolph is asked what happened at his daughter's television audition, he may only reply that she got offered "a brief but compelling cameo appearance."
4. In the event that Mr. Randolph is asked how to succeed at a game of craps, he may only reply that "the key is getting a good result from the dice."
5. In the event that Mr. Randolph is asked who played the mother on "Good Times," he may only reply "a short but capable actress named Esther."
6. Mr. Randolph is further prohibited from uttering the phrase "nice little rhythm" in any manner, fashion, or context. In the event that Mr. Randolph is asked why he enjoys jazz, he may only reply that jazz has "a snappy beat and syncopation."
7. Violation of any of the conditions of this Order will subject Mr. Randolph to a punishment of this Court's choosing, including, but not limited to, being locked in a 6' by 6' room with Scott Ferrall for a 24-hour lecture to be given by Mr. Ferrall on the finer points of baseball, politics, and interpersonal relationships.
SO ORDERED, this Eleventh Day of June, 2008.
