Well, we’ll all soon know what O.J. Simpson thinks about the anthem controversy.
Via CBSNews.com, the Hall of Fame running back could be released from prison as soon as Monday, pursuant to a plan consistent with the decision from July that approved parole for Simpson on or after October 1.
Simpson has spent nine years behind bars after a failed effort to reclaim memorabilia that had been stolen from him. In 1995, he was acquitted (if you’re among the handful who don’t know this) of killing his ex-wife and a friend who was in the worst possible place at the worst possible time. A civil jury later found him responsible for the deaths.
Whether he deliberately injects himself into the media or not, a Simpson fascination will be inevitable, with at a minimum TMZ catching sound bites from him any chance it can. On any and all topics. Starting with the topic of the moment — a moment that unfortunately is becoming frozen in place.
