No Mas!!!!!

It was 1994 -

Bill Clinton was undressing interns with his eyes.
Lorena Bobbitt (the name alone makes me cringe) was found not guilty.
The Buffalo Bills lost their 4th consecutive Super Bowl.
Must See TV was born with the premier of Friends.

And Orenthal James Simpson was charged with the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. In 1995, O.J. was acquitted in "The Trial of the Century."

Since that day, I've stood up for our justice system and O.J. Deep down, I thought he probably did it, but he was found not guilty, so in my mind, he was not guilty. Plus, as a "football guy," I really wanted to believe that he was innocent. So, I defended him time and time again.

I want to remember him as:

NOT:



And to be completely honest, I was doing a pretty good job of that. Well, until now. In a twist straight out of Big Brother or Temptation Island, Fox Network will air "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened" later this month (11/27 & 11/28). Once again, I ponder my age old questions, What in the HELL is wrong with people?????


In case you're too lazy to click the link above, here's the promo:



O.J. will be appearing on Fox to promote his new book - "If I Did It."


At this point, I have to wash my hands with The Juice. Sorry man, I tried! I guess I still have Ray Lewis!

Have a Great Weekend everyone! Don't forget to give Shabbas some love! And yes, you are allowed to watch THE GAME - Michigan - Ohio St. on Shabbas! Camping out for a Nintendo Wii is also permitted on Shabbas, just be careful if you live in Connecticut, there are crazy people out there, they have guns, and they are not afraid to bust a cap in your ass for you Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii.

Baba Ganoush, OUT!

"I didn't do it.... But if I did it (hypothetically!), I would have done it (hypothetically!) pretty much like it happened. But I did not do it. I swear."

HA! Oh god....

What the hell does that mean if I did it? What, now he can't remember? Didn't he learn anything from our boy Pete? If you're going to make that much of a media circus around your lie, you have to go to your death bed with it. You can't just bust out the truth when you're short on cash. Worst marketing strategy ever.

P.S.: Part of your 1994 milestone marker you forgot is The AML graduates from high school.

In 1994 I was in the fourth grade making boys eat dirt....

BSB said...

I was wondering when one of you would bring this up...

I find it very sad for the children and the families'..

The guy is going to make money out of this and unfortunately STUPID people will buy the book and watch him.. I'm simply NOT interested in anything he has to say ... MONEY buys everything.. look at Mr Wacko... end of story. Has Nothing to do with the justice system.

Baba Ganoush said...

Dr. Steph. - At this point, I think he has to pinky swear to get me back on his side.

Baba Ganoush said...

AML - I think Pete and OJ should join forces. I would pay to have drinks with them.

Angry B. - What the hell are you talking about, you are still making guys eat dirt!

BSB - I agree. I tried to put a funny spin on it, but in the end, it is all just sad. I will NOT buy the book, but I may tune in to the show.....we'll see.

Wow, that's very subtle putting the word "IF" in white, so it kinda fades into the background. I remember hearing the verdict. I was on a treadmill at Bally's and the woman next to me, who let's just say was a different race than myself, shouted "YES!!" loudly when it was announced. I wanted to puke...

Running Rabbit said...

I try I really try...but why am I always so damn confused on this blog? :-(

Baba Ganoush said...

jlee - yeah. it is amazing that even after the trial (and a lot of people thought he did it) people still stuck by him. This is just a slap in the fact to anyone who gave him the benefit of the doubt.

Rabbit - are you talking about Shabbas? other than that, I can not figure out what you are talking about. Shabbas is from the Big Lebowski. It is a day of rest. Watch Lebowski, take a day of Shabbas, and then try the blog again.....maybe I will make more sense then.

Claire said...

Man, the very idea of that book gives me the heebies. OJ is crazy.

Cxx

Pendullum said...

So sad for the parents of the victims...
They have to go through all of this again...
and this time it is like OJ is mocking them...
And for him to not think of the ramifications for his kids....

Baba Ganoush said...

I agree on both counts guys. Looks like the folks at Fox Network agree.....the special has been cancelled.
