  •  Perfect! A make-believe Senator (3+ / 0-)

    wants to be President of Free Shoes University, a make-believe institute of higher learning where the football program runs the show.  

    Why is it called Free Shoes U.?  

    In October 1999, Florida State all-American wide receiver Peter Warrick and Laveranues Coles were arrested and pleaded guilty to petty theft of clothes and shoes at Dillard’s department store. It was not the first time "Florida State" and "free shoes" had been used in the same punch line. In FSU’s (a.k.a. Free Shoes University) run to the national championship in 1993, nine Florida State players violated NCAA rules by allowing agents to bankroll a shopping spree at a Foot Locker store.

    In the more recent violation, Warrick and Coles received $412.38 worth of clothes and shoes for only $21.40 from a Dillard's clerk both were friendly with. They were charged with felony grand theft. Warrick was only suspended for two games. Coles was thrown off the team.

    It is scarcely possible to conceive of the laws of motion if one looks at them from a tennis ball's point of view. (Brecht)
