Are you okay with the fact that a once revered sports institution is now rotting in jail on a paper thin conviction? Because that’s what’s happening to legendary Buffalo Bill OJ Simpson. Juice has been in the Lovelock Correctional Institution near Reno since 2008. Over the weekend, lousy prosecutor Christopher Darden said the reason why the glove did not fit was because Johnnie Cochran tampered with the glove. Are you kidding me? It’s been 17 years since O.J. got away with murder. The glove didn’t fit because it shrunk after being drenched in blood, plus O.J. had his best acting performance since playing Nordberg in ‘The Naked Gun’.
Let me remind everybody that Simpson was acquitted on those murder charges. The reason he’s in the pokey today is for trying to get all his crappy memorabilia back that he says was stolen. He got 33 years for kidnapping, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. You ask Fred Goldman and he’ll tell you he doesn’t care what he’s in for, as long as he’s locked behind bars. And on one level I agree, but this current sentence is nothing more than payback to the idiots in L.A. who couldn’t get it right the first time.
I just can’t believe that he could spend the rest of his days in jail for a caper that makes Tonya Harding look like a mastermind. He’s a Heisman trophy winner for crying out loud. Besides, it’s not like he killed anyone. Court said so.
