We now interrupt your Kentucky sports coverage for the breaking news that everyone in the country is talking about: OJ Simpson has been granted parole.
In December 2008, OJ was sentenced to 33 years in prison for armed robbery. His minimum sentence was nine years, hence today’s hearing. Although his statements this afternoon were rambling and, quite frankly, remorseless, OJ’s behavior behind bars was apparently good enough to convince the board to grant his parole. He could be released as early as October 1. Golf courses across Florida, you have two and a half months to prepare.
Meanwhile, just like I did back in 1995, I wasted two hours watching the coverage. Such is life. Now back to UK sports.
