He even approached me prior to the Playoffs to make a bet as to this year's SCF Champion (with the loser treating the winner to lunch), so now the battle lines have been drawn and it's all-out war!!
He didn't even wait until Detroit's win Wednesday night before taunting us by bringing in memorabilia to decorate his office and even handed out Red Wings logos to the more die-hard Pens fans in the office (pictured below).
Well, to be polite, I held on to that logo and came up with the perfect use for it yesterday:
The amusing part about all of this is that our Chief Judge is on vacation and made him the acting Chief in the office until his return which will more than likely be after the SCF, so he can harrass us as much as he sees fit (to a point; see below -- its a portion of an email sent out to our office prior to our Chief leaving for vacation):
I will be out of the country and on vacation from May 28 to June 9, 2009. I have asked Judge ________ to serve as Acting HOCALJ during my absence on the condition that he not require the removal of any of the numerous Penguins signs posted throughout the office. Moreover, he can not engage in undue boasting in the unlikely event the Redwings win the Stanley cup.I am SO going to enjoy this series -- LET'S GO PENS!!!!
