At Least O.J. Didn't Do It


Today is Wednesday. Every Wednesdays blog will be devoted to sports. Today's vibe..."At least OJ didn't do it." (inspired by the column written on ESPN.com by writer Scoop Jackson on 10/18/07)

There's a joke running rampant through the 'hood these days. It's called: "At least Bobby Brown didn't do it." Created by comedian Sheryl Underwood, it plays on the age-old inside joke that, when bad things happen in the news, black people often pray that "one of us" wasn't the one who instigated the crime. And now that O.J. Simpson done did it again, we thought it'd be appropriate to give him the respect due. Why should Bobby Brown get all of the love? So …

The next time a famous baseball player has to testify before Congress and is lying about using performance enhancing drugs. Even though there's a mountain of evidence stacked against him: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time that a college running back shows up at the NFL Combine and has the performance of his life...but the topic that everybody keeps talking about is the 2 paternity suits that he is facing BEFORE he has even played one minute in the NFL: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time a legendary college basketball coach quits on his team during the middle of the season and names his son as his successor despite the fact that his son is not ready to be a head coach in college basketball: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time that an NBA player gets in a fight in a bar and someone gets stabbed: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time that you hear about an athlete being robbed for his expensive jewelry: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time that a baseball player punches a fan: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time a basketball icon divorces his wife and has to fork over 150 million: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time a Pro Football Hall of Famer bum-rushes a hotel room with his boys, guns drawn, demanding that the dude selling the sports memorabilia "return his shit," well … that might be OJ...But still...

The next time a NFL player admits to fathering 9 kids from 7 different women...and has to ask his team to give him an advance on his salary so that he doesn't fall behind on child support payments: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time that an athlete holds out from playing to re-negotiate their contract so that they can make even more money: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time we hear an athlete say "it's not about the money"...we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time we hear about an athlete whining about not winning an award or wanting to be traded b/c they are unhappy: we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

The next time that a hockey player is inadvertently kicked in the throat by the skating blade of one of his teammates...and then he proceeds to almost bleed to death on the ice in front of thousands of spectators...we can say: "At least O.J. didn't do it."

We know he don't need a skating blade because he's good with a regular knife. LOL

I think I remember this article. I agree its definitely a running joke amongst sports fans.

Lemme see...the next time Isiah Thomas gets hired to destroy the mentality of the fan of that franchise...we can yell, "At least OJ didnt do it."

And I agree, OJ is better with a knife.
