"Loosen Up, Sandy Baby!"

This found on Yahoo News.

“Sandra Day O’Connor, retiring justice, played tennis and golf well, danced expertly with her husband, John, and made frequent appearances on the Washington party circuit.

O’Connor was embarrassed in 1989 after conservative Republicans in Arizona used a letter she had sent to support their claim that the United States is a “Christian nation.”

The 1988 letter, which prompted some harsh criticism of O’Connor by legal scholars, cited three Supreme Court rulings in which the nation’s Christian heritage was discussed.

O’Connor said she regretted the letter’s use in a political debate. “It was not my intention to express a personal view on the subject of the inquiry,” she said.

O’Connor’s name was linked in 1985 with that of Washington Redskins football star John Riggins when at a formal dinner he was heard to tell the justice sharing his table, “Loosen up, Sandy baby.”

Shortly thereafter, the women who participated with O’Connor at an 8 a.m. daily exercise class presented her with a tee-shirt that proclaimed: “Loosen up at the Supreme Court.”
