As the NCAA tournament rolls around I’m always reminded of a 2012 D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals case in which Judge Thomas B. Griffith cited a YouTube video of Jimmer Fredette’s performance against Gonzaga in the 2011 Tournament. Writing about metaphors in Kiewit Powers Constructors Co. v. NLRB (see p. 11), Judge Griffith says, “Indeed, such metaphors are part and parcel of competitive spirit. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6mqFMdhDe4 (describing college basketball phenom Jimmer Fredette as ‘destroy[ing]‘ an opponent with his combination of long-range proficiency and acrobatic drives).” Go Cougars!
