Why is Ken Chestek, a legal writing professor at the University of Indiana-Indianapolis and President-elect of the Legal Writing Institute, wearing a New Orleans Saints football jersey? Because he made a bet with Mary Algero, a legal writing professor at Loyola University in New Orleans and President-elect of the Association of Legal Writing Directors as to whose team would win the Superbowl. The loser had to don the other side's jersey, have their photo taken at the classroom podium, and post the photo on Facebook for a week. The loser also has to wear the jersey to the other writing organization's board meeting in Marco Island at LWI's conference in June. Get used to that Saints shirt, Ken!
