    Al Michaels stopped at a DUI checkpoint, fails the field sobriety test, charged.


    Subtle references to gambling are encourage through the rest of the thread.

    That DUI was bullshit. He was right on the legal limit. He could get a lawyer from a crappy strip mall in Anaheim to get him off on this one.

    Big money on the under has pushed the over-under down to 35 minutes.

    Would love to see Al doing the play-by-play of the basketball game in the prison yard.

    Another brilliant extrapolation, Butters.

    So you think Al will get three-to-five hard time over this?

    It's not officially SNF until Al's gambling reference.

    Umm, no. First, his two blows were .09 and .08, which means the blows were probably something like .091 and .089, but the way the instruments work the third decimal is truncated (not rounded) or dropped. He wasn't "right on the legal limit." Second the legal limit is .08. You measure .07999, you're fine, .08 you're not.

    As long as the checkpoint meets constitutional muster, he ain't getting off based on the breath alcohol content.
