O.J. Simpson had a party in his jail cell in honor of the Super Bowl earlier this month. On Feb. 12, The New York Post reported that O.J. squashed some of his prison pals in to his cell to watch the 49ers take on the Ravens on his personal television. Apparently inmates can purchase their own televisions from the "inmate store."
According to Simpson’s friend Norman Pardo, the party was pretty exclusive. O.J. is a popular guy at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada -- and guys were fighting for an invitation. Obviously space was limited so not everyone could attend.
The O.J. Simpson party is getting a lot of attention on the web today. Many find it strangely ironic that the former NFL player had to watch the game from a jail cell -- but others are wondering what other kind of "fun" O.J. and the other inmates are having while locked up. Sure, the cell may have not been the most comfortable place, and maybe people had to sit on the floor, so how much of a "party" was it really?
Other details about O.J.'s "invite only" soiree have not been released. It is unknown if the inmates had snacks or if they did anything else "special" for the big game. O.J. has quite a few more years to "celebrate" the Super Bowl from his cell -- perhaps this will become a tradition.
What do you think about O.J. Simpson's party?
