Wherever you are: HA. HA. Did I win some kind of bet? Bragging rights on a message board I'm no longer on? At any rate: Hello out there. Louisville beat Notre Dame.

So... Who here has been listening to Serial? If you still haven't checked it out yet, you really should get on it. There are definitely quite a few things I'm still conflicted on in terms of the actual case, but it's at least become abundantly clear that from a legal perspective Adnan should have not been found guilty and given a life sentence. I don't want to get too deep into details yet in case some people are just starting it or are behind or whatever, but man, Thursdays have quickly become my favorite day of the week solely because of this podcast.

There's an incredible 250 comment thread on my fb about Serial. Add me if you haven't already. And anyway this is a great thread. We'd made a very about Louisville/Notre Dame football like six years ago and the game finally happened.

You don't want to spoil something that's real and terrible and already happened to people?

Yes, it is a terrible crime that actually happened. I don't want to spoil the way that Sarah Koening and Co. have unraveled their own investigation into the case though. In the same way I wouldn't want to have given someone a play by play of the way Errol Morris's 'The Thin Blue Line' was constructed, even though that also revolved around a crime in which a man was murdered in cold blood as well. I don't necessarily buy into the criticisms of Serial that it's exploitative of Hae, especially considering there has been absolutely no victim blaming throughout the episodes and, if anything, they have gone to decent lengths to show she was a relatively normal teenage girl who was, by all accounts that we've heard, a really good person who never deserved the horrible fate she received.

The fact still remains though that Adnan is serving a life sentence for her murder, and even if he had some part in the murder, the actual case put against him was so incredibly thin that there is no way he should have ever been found legally guilty and given that sentence given those circumstances.

So yeah, I don't feel like posting too many spoilers about the case for people that have not acquainted themselves with it yet.

Wait a second...didn't you start claiming Michigan when you started a PhD program there or something? Anyway, I think any bet is voided when the coach at the time is involved in a scandal involving a motorcycle crash and a volleyball player.

i'm pretty sure adnan was at least somehow involved in hae's murder. the neisha call and the leakin park cell tower getting pinged are just a little too much. i think jay was also clearly more involved than he let on.

but yeah, there is no way he should have been convicted.

apparently adnan has been granted an appeal for jan 2015.
