Other than that, you got nothin' that any sane person wants to hear.

I feel very sorry for your kids, especially after I read this:

This is what narcissists do: they suck weak people into their narrative. I mean, we see it every day with Trump, right? Simpson is the same exact kind of irredeemable asshole.

I'm surprised someone hasn't murdered, or at least assaulted him, whether in jail or on the golf course.

Like I said in an earlier thread, when he does kick off, the media will think anyone actually cares.

Hasn't run into buddy yet. I sometimes get like that if I miss a five-footer.

From CNN :

Quote:
After nine years in prison, the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners voted to grant Simpson early release, with one member calling him a "low risk to reoffend."
He already has, with his first tweets.

Come on! A narcissist asshole who commits crimes and escapes justice? The parallel is obvious, so of course Trump will get a mention. With Trump, the glove would fit, though.

So let me get this straight., You are surprised no one has assaulted or murdered the person that you say no one actually cares about. Clear as mud.

Looks like he's got a quite a number of people following him. People seem to be eager to chase after him there.

He decided to use the 25th anniversary of his wife's murder to do this. But he's already got over 600,000 followers.

I would hope they're train-wreck-watchers, not fans.

Most of them seem to be people making various puns and references to the trial.

Everyone is on Twitter. I guess OJ had to take a stab at it.

One thing that keeps me alive is the thought of the Naked Happy Dance I am going to do when OJ is dead juice.

I find your estimate of world sanity unrealistic.

Well, if nearwildheaven means "care" about OJ in the sense of "would piss on him if he was on fire", it's probably accurate that most people do not care about him. I mean, a lot of people didn't like Reagan or Bush the Elder, but they had enough respect for them to be somewhat sad when they died. It's closer to when Nixon died, except there were some good things to say about him.

Will anything good be said about OJ when he dies? The media will make their tributes, but since they'll be awfully short on footage of celeb friends eulogizing him and the general public in mourning for him*, they'll have to talk about something. So it'll probably be his athletic feats; that's safe territory. But you're not going to see him canonized like Dimaggio and Ali were.

*(I still believe that the people cheering the verdict were cheering as much for Johnnie Cochran as they were for OJ. I'm not sure their adulation for OJ has lasted until now.)

Reminds me of Sacha Baron Cohen's interview with OJ.

Yeah, okay, it sounds snotty, but dude only was in ONE freaking playoff game. Where the Bills got their asses kicked by none other than MY Pittsburgh Steelers. In fact, O.J. himself got pretty smashed up Jack Hamm and Jack Lambert.

And of course, we would then go on to win our first Super Bowl. But of course, as you can see, I'm biased.

Anybody remember the comedienne Chocolate (Chinnitta Morris)? I saw her on Live at the Apollo. She asked the audience if they thought Simpson is innocent. There was a big round of applause and shouting showing the crowd overwhelmingly did. Chocolate's response was, "Oh, please. You are saying that because you think O.J. is Black. O.J. hasn't been Black since he won the Heissman." She highlighted something there. Simpson has a following that simply does not care if he did it or not. And now they have access to their hero on twitter, one of the scourges of today's society, apparently.

He won the Heisman Trophy, and is still a hero at Southern Cal. They don't display his trophy in Heritage Hall, but they play highlights of that game when he scored all those points for a big second-half comeback for the victory.

I forget the year, and don't feel like looking it up. I think it was against Notre Dame.

I was talking to a retired teacher, and this subject came up. He said that the Black teachers in the staff lunchroom actually cheered when he was found "not guilty".

Cochran's no longer above ground to hawk it w/an idiotic tagline like 'Marcia Clark's theories don't jibe, you must subscribe.' Almost 24 years to the day he dropped this turd...At least video tweets can't be misspelled.
