Hard to believe.

I was just out of the military, staying with some friends in Virginia for the summer before coming back to Pennsylvania to start undergrad school.

Took a third shift job running a forklift in a warehouse to stay busy (and out of trouble), woke up one evening to find this all over the tv:

When I think of Ford Broncos, I think of this...

35 mph chases narrated by Dan Rather, seems like it was yesterday. I was glued to the tv, remember even pondering calling out of my shift and grabbing some brew to see how this would end.

I can't imagine how this would play out today, social media and all.

Any fond memories of this night? I recall the WWL doing a 30 for 30 on this, the World Cup was going on, the U.S. Open, NBA Finals - they all took a back seat (sorry) to O.J. that night.

Yeah, from the murder, to the Bronco chase, to the trial that followed; none of it seemed real.

But I have to say I did enjoy the John Elway "Slow White Bronco" jokes that ensued.

Oh I think they'd of gunned OJ down about 6 minutes into the chase...

There are some real "Bad Machines" out there.  Thank goodness there is more Good to compensate for the Evil in Man.

Was wnroute to Madison for my son's first elite soccer tournament.  Called the campground to let them know we were a bit behind schedule and was told not to worry, they were watching the "chase".

Whatever happened to Cato?

I had (and still have somewhere) a 'Save the Juice' tee with  the darkened mugshot on it.

Not what you're looking for but very creative.

NBA Finals

This still annoys me. The only game I got to enjoy was Game 7.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
