O.J. Simpson held Super Bowl party in his prison cell
O.J. Simpson, serving a 33-year sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, had a problem many people had earlier this month: How to throw the best Super Bowl party.
According to the New York Post, Simpson held a Super Bowl party in his cell on the day of the big game because he had the one thing that any good Super Bowl party requires: A TV.
“If you have the money, you can buy a TV at the inmate store and put it in your cell,” Simpson’s friend, Norman Pardo, told the Post. “There was no shortage of potential guests because he’s so popular. He’s like the Godfather of the prison now.”
So a dozen or so of Simpson’s closest prisoner buddies crammed into his 80-square-foot cell to watch.
Can you shape a chicken wing into the shape of a key and escape? Hide a file in pizza? Turn nacho cheese sauce into an explosive? Since Simpson is still in prison, probably not.
