OJ Simpson in Better Days



About 35 years ago, in Shea Stadium, OJ Simpson of the Buffalo Bills had one of his best days ever. He went over 2000 rushing yards for the season- the first NFL player to do that. Earlier in the game, he surpassed the single season rushing record of the great Jim Brown.

Thirteen years ago, he was falsely acquitted of two vicious murders.

Today, some long overdue justice as he was sentenced to up to 33 years for robbery and kidnapping.

Karma's a bitch. The wheels of justice grind slow, but here they have ground fine. He may die in prison.

Thirty five years ago, he was cheered by the fans at Shea, and had the world at his feet.

That is very interesting footage of OJ. Especially in light of today's verdict.

I agree with the comment above as well as your post. I used to pretend to be OJ Simpson running through an airport for Hertz. Now, sadly it has come to this. Justice has been served.

May he rot in prison and then burn in hell.
