O.J. Simpson Throws Super Bowl Party…in PrisonPublished by Natasha Fierce on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 10:00 am.
Can you serve nachos and wings in prison?
O.J. Simpson came close when he hosted…wait for it…a Super Bowl party in his 80 ft. cell at Lovelock Correctional Center, Nevada, where he’s serving a 33-year term for kidnapping and armed robbery.
The Juice, who actually has a television in his cell, according to the New York Post, threw a bash in honor of football’s biggest day for his fellow inmates. “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 says. Pardo adds that while he may be vilified on the outside, Simpson is actually one of the most popular inmates at Lovelock. “He’s like the Godfather of the prison now,” Pardo says.
Pardo, interestingly, is the guy who was responsible for trying (and failing) to rehab O.J.’s image after his shocking acquittal for double homicide left him to be one of the most hated men on the planet. Maybe now he should focus on getting his client an endorsement deal for orange jumpsuits?
