Did anyone else watch this OJ Simpson documentary business on ESPN?
Why are you looking at me like that? Do I not look like the kind of girl who watches ESPN? The 30 for 30’s are done really well, ok???
Apparently I’ve always had a thing for OJ. My parents recently told me that when I was a wee tot, I would scream, “OJ! OJ! OJ!” every time we passed a Bronco. This seems far-fetched to me but I like to believe I was a really advanced 3-year-old.
This series made me realize that I missed my calling. Trial lawyer would really suit me. Put me in a smart suit and let me recite a dramatic monologue to a room full of people – umm hello? I would not, however, enjoy the pressure of fighting injustices and corruption and it would probably ruin Snapped for me and I hate to lose so.
How did I just make the OJ case about me?¿
