    Default Sad but True

    Tragic Local Courtroom Drama plays out in Denver -

    Denver, CO (AP) -A seven-year old boy was at the center of a Douglas County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Denver Broncos, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    How did I not see that one coming?? LOL!!! I am a St. Louis Rams fan and I would like to rewrite this joke (or reality for me) by inserting the Rams at the end.

    Are you absolutely certain there wasn't a better way to have worded that?

    Then again, I've been bending over and taking it like a man via the Dolphins all season long.
