Cousin Vino retains Counsel

Cousin Vino has hired the same two fine American Attorneys who are brilliantly steering the S.S. Landis away from the shoals. Or they’re trying to anyway. Funny thing is, they get paid the same either way.

Alexandre Vinokourov and his Astana team, forced out of the Tour de France after Vinokourov’s initial positive test for a banned blood transfusion, have retained the two lawyers defending 2006 Tour de France winner Floyd Landis against doping charges.

Maurice Suh and Howard Jacobs arrived in Paris on Thursday to do preliminary research on Vinokourov’s case, Suh told ESPN.com. …Suh’s firm, Los Angeles-based Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, will take the lead on Vinokourov’s case. Jacobs has represented numerous athletes accused of doping, including cyclist Tyler Hamilton, who also tested positive for homologous transfusion, the same offense Vinokourov allegedly committed.

Jacobs should be remembered for introducing the “disappearing twin defense“. Simply brilliant. Brilliant up. Brilliant down. Brilliant all around.

If they tell me Vino is also a “human chimera”; I will set my fucking house on fire.

Ok, maybe my neighbor’s house. I kinda like my place. And my neighbor can go to hell.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. oh man. This whole shit-show is going from “outrage” to “absurd” to “wtf?” to now I’m just fucking laughing like a maniacle 1929 stock broker watching the ticker run figuratively and literally out the fuckin’ window.
