As I've mentioned before here, I'm on a quest to master moot court. Despite some valiant attempts, it hasn't quite happened yet. But my friend and I have gone ahead and signed up for a national one next year anyway (although we might swap it out for an international one - we're still researching our options.) Third time's the charm, right?
Of course, we should be a kick-ass team, just so you all know. Woe be the team that goes up against us. You should hear us go back and forth against each other with the Yankees-Red Sox trashtalking. Imagine how awesomely powerful we'll be if we can channel all that verbal wit into the practice of appellate advocacy.
(Of course, we're so used to directing our powers against each other that there is the danger, as my friend mused, that whichever one of us goes second in oral arguments might be inclined to say, "Your honor, let me begin by rebutting my co-counsel..." I suggested that someone's probably advised against doing that, probably on a list of "things not to do during moot court that are so stupid that we didn't even think to put it on the list of things not to do during moot court." I have the sinking suspicion that if there's not such a list yet, there will be by the time we get done with it...)
