Flip, Flop, the Flippiety Flop, and You Can't Stop

One of my favorite case snippets, which I shoehorn into as many things as possible, is this: 

"A litigant cannot be permitted to blow hot and cold in this manner.”

(A & M Records, Inc. v. Heilman (1977) 75 Cal.App.3d 554, 566.)

While a litigant may be so precluded, this rule apparently does not apply to a quarterback.
