The OJ car chase, I think, is a... I'm not sure what word to use. Defining? Certainly, a memorable moment for my generation. I remember watching that white Bronco speeding down the highway and thinking, "What the @#$% does he think he's doing? Where's he going to go?"

He'd always seemed like such a likable guy - in the Naked Gun movies and as a football analyst for, I think, CBS. He had a great rapport with Terry Bradshaw.

It's hard to believe all of that was 16 years ago.
I was young, but I remember my father was trying to watch the NBA Finals and they broke in with the OJ Simpson low speed chase and put the NBA in a small box in upper corner of the TV with no audio. My father was not too happy.
I had a law class that year in high school (11th grade)...we ended up discussing the legal aspects of OJ in class. :001_huh:
