5. "At home watching the Finals and being PISSED they were interrupted" In response to Reply # 0
When you're in elementary school, "media firestorm trials of the century" don't really resonate as a good reason to interrupt a thing you're watching on TV. At least it wasn't an episode of Batman The Animated Series or anything important like that.
I really liked those Riley Knicks teams that couldn't get past the Bulls, so I was pulling for them that year. Maybe one of the more emotionally invested I've ever been in a Finals.

Where I lived in PA we got shit on by the snow that winter (similar to this year). My oldest brother and parents got trapped in State College when he was there for States in mid March! I think the mid state was in a state of emergency for almost a week.
Our last day was June 20th. Longest school year ever.

into the NBA. I was always jealous of him bc his parents spoiled him and got him like a dozen plus authentic jerseys - back when they were real pricey for a 10-11 year old. Dude had the entire Charlotte Hornets lineup just for the hell of it (his favorite team was the Magic).
That was my 5th grade year. As I recall, that was a really strange/fascinating year for newsworthy events. You had the Nancy Kerrigan/Tanya Harding fiasco, the Michael Faye caning in Singapore, Kurt Cobain's suicide, etc.. Meatloaf & Aerosmith were somehow amongst the biggest groups at the time. Looking back, it does all seem strange.

after the verdict though i do remember making my teacher mad saying OJ was innocent. i didn't really care either way, i was just being contrarian. talking about the glove didn't fit, the racist cops, and why would he leave a bloody glove on the scene anyway?
i kept at it & i remember dude dropping whatever he was doing, taking off his glasses, and raising his voice, "KUNGSET, HE WAS CRYING AND SAYING SORRY DRIVING DOWN THE 405 FREEWAY! COME ON!" lmao.. it got too real for me then and i was just like aw yeah good point

I was getting a hair cut when he was found NOT GUILTY. My precocious lil ass was the only one ridin for the juice lol
Everybody's got opinions on the way you're living but see they can't fill your shoes... Life is made of half-illusions... forty percent confusion, whatever's left I'm using... to keep myself from losing, yeah.

I was convinced that Derek Harper was gonna revise his role as Rocket-killer all series long and doom the Rockets since Kenny didn't have the chops to deal with him on D..especially fighting off them hood ass screens from that era of ball. Not to mention I figured the Knicks would get ALL of the calls considering the market, the big-time love for the East, the 'Jordan is gone y'all..what is we 'gon do!?' thing, etc. AND I halfway considered the Rockets doomed after our guards got caught with coke during the 86 season/playoffs/whenever it was...hell...wasn't that Wiggins' daddy? If so...yeah...that.
Then, I saw the Bronco, heard who it was, and thought 'no way...I just saw OJ on the football panel on TV and he was awesome'. Then...ohh...yes way. Then, Johnny started rhyming and shit and OJ 'got away with it'. And then, only my grandma on my mama's side and my pops would even try to claim they thought he was innocent. My grandma feels like if she wasn't there, she doesn't feel right saying she thinks he's guilty.
Shiiiid...I say stuff like 'I'ma pull a OJ and take a stab at it' regularly now. I said it in front of my pops a couple weeks ago and he tried to play that 'I still don't think he did it...he prolly knew about it but I don't straight up think it was him' card.
