Crazy People, Part Four A/K/A Trial (OK, Arbitration) of the Century

Filed under: bitchin' and moanin',Sporty Spice — by Nicole @ 9:31 pm

Sweet Jesus…this thing is never going to end! We went BACK to Small Claims Court again last night because everyone’s favorite yahoo filed his Show Cause motion. The sitting judge vacated our prior arbitration award because the “Southern Gentleman and Scholar” claims to have been sick the first time around. Regardless of the fact that said genius didn’t bother to contact the court for a continuance, we were forced to stick around and be re-heard by the arbitrator.

Long story short, this guy is beyond insane. The crux of his argument against paying the money he owes us is the fact that he is still bitter about not having gone to the “Aaron Boone game” a/k/a Game Seven of the…wait for it…2003 ALCS. No, that is not a typo. This fool is going back to an unrelated, 5+ year old, completely irrational grudge to lay the foundation for his current refusal to pony up. The pair of tickets for the “second shot heard ’round the world” game went to one of the other guys in our buying group who was going to bring his son along. Crazy McNutso asked that he be contacted if the son didn’t end up going. It seems that the son may or may not have gone to the game, and our West Virginian friend went apeshit. Apparently, the rest of the buying group had some sort of psychic powers and knew that this was going to be a game that would live on in history, so we decided to screw him out of those tickets for, oh I don’t know, shits and giggles.

It has now officially become a waiting game, as we anticipate the arbitration award to come through in our favor. Recovering the moolah, however, is going to be the tricky part. Methinks this looney-tunes isn’t going to hand over the cash with a bouquet of flowers and an apology card. In the likely event that he doesn’t comply with the award, we’ll have to send the Marshals after him and his assets. He, of course, will ultimamtely incur more cost upon himself, as he would be wholly responsible for the expenses involved with utilizing the Marshal Service.

I think I need a drink.
