Plenty of Fantasy Players on This Bench
I thought we had completely maxed out on the Supreme Court geekiness with the baseball cards and then the oral arguments available on iTunes, but no... not even close. Today, I present you with the new gold standard in Supreme Court geekery: "FantasySCOTUS.net, the Premier Supreme Court Fantasy League."
FantasySCOTUS.net is the brainchild of Josh Blackman, who admits to being an "unashamedly big Supreme Court nerd." At the beginning of the October 2009 term, he writes, "a friend asked me to predict the outcome of several Supreme Court cases. After making my predictions, I thought it would be cool if Vegas took bets on Supreme Court cases like they do on sporting events. And then I wondered, why not a Supreme Court Fantasy League? FantasySCOTUS.net was born." He adds, "I know there are more people out there like me."
In this fantasy league, participants compete against friends, colleagues and adversaries to determine who has the greatest ability to predict the outcome of Supreme Court cases. At the end of the term, the winner "will receive the venerable title of the Chief Justice of Fantasy SCOTUS," not to mention the "Golden Gavel Trophy."
So put down your Justice Roberts trading card, take off your headphones playing Bush v. Gore, and make us all proud by bringing home the Golden Gavel Trophy.
