Kicker Justice

Much thanks to Tom McMahon, proprietor of a wonderful site you just have to see for yourself - Four Block World - for the heads up on the resolution of the libel case between former Bears kicker (and present-day judge!) Bob Thomas and the Kane County Chronicle. The court found in favor of Thomas to the tune of seven million dollars! Way to go, Bob.

I've got to point out another thing I love about kickers: they've got to be the only guys who go from pro football to being judges, and a Chief Justice to boot?!

You can read all about it here.
