It looks like we filled up the backfield for the All-Time Dumbass Football Team.
Both morons were in legal news today. O.J. was convicted for
the 1994 murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman armed robbery, among other things and Lawrence Phillips was sentenced to 10 years in the hooey for armed robbery.
What I learned from all of this is that it's not a very good idea to punch a woman, drive a car onto a football and hit three kids, murder your ex-wife and her friend, or to commit armed robbery while being audio-taped. These are all innocent mistakes we make all the time without even thinking about them. But I hope their convictions make people stop and think about them now. I know I sure will.
One final thought: This conviction makes me question 2Pac's psychic ability. I gave him a free pass for not seeing his drive-by demise coming, but in the song "Picture Me Rollin'" he declares himself "Free like O.J., all day.". This really changes things for me.
