While I know very little about life inside the walls of a prison, I have heard enough stories to know that there are several ways you can become popular and several ways you can fall out of grace. OJ Simpson may have found a way to increase his standing among his peers on Super Bowl Sunday.

According to the NY Post, Simpson held a Super Bowl viewing party in his jail cell at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada. He is reportedly one of the few inmates who has his own TV, so he invited several friends to cram into his 80-square-foot cell to watch the Baltimore Ravens defeat the San Francisco 49ers.

“If you have the money, you can buy a TV at the inmate store and put it in your cell,” the former NFL star’s producer friend Norman Pardo told the Post. “He’s like the Godfather of the prison now.”

Simpson is serving a 33-year sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery, so he could be there a while. A TV set was probably a solid investment, especially if it helps protect him from his fears of being killed by Aryan Warriors gang members while behind bars.

  • And the purpose of this story? So some fool idiot can tie this story into Ray Lewis some kind of way. Get a life!!
  • You are the only one bringing up Rya Lewis here, idiot.

    Oh..and by the way...Lewis is a murderer.
  • get a life douche bag!
  • First of all Ray Lewis is NOT a murderer, and second of all learn how to spell!! Rya????????
  • Wrong, Lewis never shot anyone!!
  • Beware...This is a scam.
  • I seen the same scam on another page and knew better than to look, you are right it is a scam! people beware
  • Big scam
  • he was just having a bit of nostalgia ... oh wait, he never won a superbowl, lol
  • Delete this fool.
  • I bet that was a killer party!
  • One of the best comments ever!
  • Haha. That's great.
  • If you're in prison, you shouldn't have any rights!!!
  • Tell that to the CO's who have to watch after these guys.
  • did they furnish with some white trash for him and his buddies?
  • I "WISH" Nicole would have went to an Aryan Camp....! "WOW" That's a big "ACCOMPLISHMENT" Are there anymore reasons to pop champaigne with the creepy crawler. What are we celebrating here? He need to repent for his sins(Murderer). The God Father stood for something(family) and it wasn't a jealous wife beating man who kills his wife! Please do not associate the God Father with someone's embarassing grandfather who is suppose to be at home enjoying his grandchildren and not in a jail cell serving 33 years at his age.
  • i wonder if the taxpayers footed that bill?
  • what's with the 80 square feet cell. it doesn't sound like he's being punished to me. What's he doing with so much money; he has never paid a dime to the families of the ones he killed. he's a scum bag that needs to pay for what he's done!
  • Well, He is in prison. As far as money, The Browns and Goldmans cannot go after his NFL pension. There's always a chance OJ gets introduced to a shank.
  • Do you know how friggin small 80sqft is? He is living in a very small cell with a small BS tv. You did get one thing right however, he is a scumbag
  • OHJ my gosh. Had almost forgotten about the s.b. Don't suppose
    his kids(whatever age they are now)are invited to party with Dear Old Dad in prison(probably a tent set up away from the
    prison). My ? has always been, what about the infamous motorcade down a L.A. freeway for so long and so slow if he was innocent. Also, why did he show no concern for his children
    during that episode? This would have been the actions of most
    innocent men. Thank goodness some justice was finally served!!

    If the glove does fit is the reason he is in prison, don't ya
    think?
  • of course we're footing the bill!! When will people wake up??????????????? We are dieing as a nation here and NO ONE is doing S..t about it, me included................... We ARE DOOMED!!! Read: the rise and fall......... we are soooooo STUPID!!!!!!!!
  • What are you on?
  • Hey, chill pill, everyone. And reality check, while we're at it.
    We're talking about OJ SIMPSON!! D'you truly not understand that? Are you that young and stupid? Or old and bitter? This is *"The Juice"*, late of the Buffalo Bills. 2003 yards, folks. *2003* yards!! And in a day when it was a game of men, For men. 2003 yards. In 14 games. Not the 29 or 30 they play, now.
    You've seen the footage. The pix. UnReal, the majesty. Dodging one tackler, straight-arming another, hip-faking a third...! This is History. This is The Game. This...is one of its heroes. Orenthal James Simpson.
    It's easy to mock, and it's easy to find fault. There's no beauty left in this "appropriate", Brave New World you're creating. No, let's pile on. Let's be like video game monsters and "keep killing him". Again, it's easy. Isn't it? He's trapped in a cell in a prison in a life from which, he'll never be free. And, that isn't good enough for you. But, you can't stop Yesterday. You are literally powerless, against That Which Has Gone Before.
    I say, Run, OJ, Run! Go, Juice! Helluva running back.
  • You, sir, are an idiot. The man is a killer, period. No matter how great he "was", come nightfall, he will be 1 thing--a killer. Too bad you are not his bunkmate buddy. That way, you could continue to suck up and suck on him.
  • Privileges in prison is not about rights, it is about money going back into the system,in prison you pay 200% more for an item that you would pay in the free world, a big chunk of the profits is for the prison to keep according to the DOC for "recreational purposes" such as paying for cable,buying lifting weight equipment,baseballs,basketballs, soccer balls, teams uniforms...etc.etc. So when you hear people say that tax payers foot all this so called luxuries for felons IT IS A LIE!!! and I know because I've been there........
  • Must be nice to have partys in prison where you are there for punishment for crimes against people, free food, free shelter, He should have been exucuted for his part in the murders! Its no ones fault but his for this situation, Get away with murder and then be stupid enough to arm rob someone, did he actually think he could get away with that also?
  • OJ is currently serving a 33 year sentence because Double Jeopardy does not serve any purpose in this country. When an
    individual can be tried and found not guilty in this country,
    and sent to jail for the very same charges he was found innocent
    of (simply using more eloquent terminology), it solidifies the
    fact that racism is ALIVE AND WELL and that EVIL DOERS still
    exist. Many of you hate OJ Simpson while you applaude those
    Police Officers who have murdered soooo many young blacks and
    have been exonerated. MAY GOD BLESS YOU
  • YEA RIGHT.....The firast thing that comes ouuta ya mouth is racism......GET A FRIGGIN LIFE...tired of hearing your racism crap...OJ is a scum and needs to be shot for killing those people
  • BS....u know damn good and well that OJ was guilty..
  • Put the Bible down and read a newspaper. OJ is currently in jail for charges totally unrelated to the murder charges he was aquitted on. No double jeopardy.

  • I wanna see ur punk ass talk that racism horseshit to Ronald Goldman's father who's son OJ murdered!!! Just cause that piece of trash got acquitted, doesn't mean he wasn't GUILTY! He got acquitted cause the government didn't want a bunch of THUGS to tear down LA and every other city in America...BOTTOM LINE! You know it, I know it & the rest of America know it. The MOST EMBARRASSING thing about this whole deal is this POS is watching TV, getting fed and still alive on MY DOLLAR & every other HONEST tax paying citizen's DOLLAR!!! SCREW YOU OJ SIMPSON, u POS!!!
  • I second your emotion Mr.1B1stUB2nd! Yeah, The government did not want a war. The second time the Thugs said "Your On Your Own". He was always a thug, he went thugging with some wanna be Thugs and they Flipped and Snitched. I guess you should pick your company wisely.
  • I am a Black Woman;However, I totally disagree with supporting any murderer regardless to what color he is. "Killing over Coochie" Okay. When Black's say and think our children are important and matter then others as well may share the same sentiment!!!!
  • So F*#in what. He'll be hosting till SB MXXII (think thats how you spell 72). Be more interested if he gots a boyfriend yet. Is he the bull or the biatch ???
  • Almost, LXXII is 72, MXXII is 1022.
  • Actually, Super Bowl 72, would be LXXII...and, trust me, he'll be providing the color commentary, a free man, by SB L (that's 50..."M", is 1000, btw).
    As for the Reply to me, Above, I don't read Replies, but accidentally caught the word, 'idiot'. Nice to see how I'm proven so offbase, by humanitarian sportsfans.
  • Look up Glen Rogers.

    Maybe O.J. should have just been tried for something else from the beginning.
  • Exactly Glen Rogers killed Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman so now what do white people do with they hate for O.J lol
  • O.J. is bar none one of the top 10 idiots on the planet. The fact that his life is even note worthy makes me wonder about the writer of the article as well. Isn't time better spent on important issues, rather than O.J. a.k.a. Lou Zerr. P.S. Knowing the prison system like I DO -- O,J, is not the ONLY INMATE with a Television and you don't get them from the prison store! They are ORDERED via mail or online!!! 85% of the population has one.
  • Why was my post removed?

    No freedom of speech here?
  • Most of you here have never been to prison, except what you see on tv. And think that it is real. People in jail have all the right just like you and I except Men don't have women, and women don't have babies. An as far as the Aryan Bro's, an all white group, there also the BGF. that protect Black Men. Now as far as Billy Bob, and Billy Ray, they can get stuck too, over nonsence. So you people get a grip, he will do his 16 years, get out find another white woman and live happliy ever after, with (ALL) of his money, remember haft goes to his kids, which he has custody off, smile.
  • And you finding that to be acceptable is what is wrong with this country, Loser.
  • GO WARRIORS! GO WARRIORS! GO GET HIM!!!
  • OJ would be a far, far better Secretary of Defense!
  • HE looks right at home.good for you scumbag!Race has nothing to do with armed robery,it is what it is.as far as the outher charge who cares!
  • Worked at Lovelock as a Corrections Officer. OJ has a small see through TV like every other inmate. Lovelock houses the greatest population of convicted child molesters and PC's in the State Of Nevada Corrections System. He probably watched it with a bunch of scumbags just like him! Have fun in your little cell oj. Just where you belong!
  • In my opinion, I guess I must have a life because I have no idea who Ray Lewis is. I am actually tired of news bs. We believe what the media wants us to believe. If the media said the sky is falling, we would believe it as gospel. They pick and chose what they want us to know and in the meantime, real and worthy stories.
  • This is not about Death. It's about a superbowl party held in OJ's jail cell None of you haters saw him do anything wrong. Oj is mentally dead never to feel or see Freedon again. He paid the cost to be the boss.
  • First of all, he was not found guilty of the murder largely because the police were caught lying. Secondly the "victims" of the robbery he supposedly committed were total scum bags who were essentially selling his stolen memorabilia. Finally, his sentence is outrageous for the crime but he is OJ so they got to make him pay for his real crime; marrying a white woman. I'll bet he wishes now he had kept it black.
  • First off, for you tards that don't get your facts straight before commenting, he is not in prison for murder. This is a fine example of why people don't care if they go to prison or not, no kind of punishment to most of them, they get free room and board, computers, TV etc. Race is not the topic here people, look at it for what it is, a POS took lives and in my opinion got away with it. It is wrong, black, white, yellow, what he did was WRONG so for those of you that blame him for the color or those of you who approve of him for his color is WRONG.
  • SO....WHAT? You think it was the only SB party in any jail?
  • How do they fix it? In my opinion they should not have radios, TV's or computers, hard labor for the repeat offenders and the serious crimes. Work them for the good of the people in some way to where they don't want to come back to prison or so they don't want to go there to begin with. Just maybe crime would go down.
  • I do believe that a lot of the American public thinks that suspects should by tried by the media with all of their propaganda and money making sensationalization of the news and exploitation of both victims and suspects alike! Regardless of how much the media would have loved to convict this man of murder, a JURY who heard ALL THE FACTS, not just bits and pieces like the media was giving out, found him "NOT GUILTY"!
    I just can't believe how the general public seems to think they have the ability to be judge and jury without having even half the facts that a JURY is given!
    Another case on point is Casey Anthony. I watched most of what was televised of her trial. I don't know if the JURY was correct in their verdict; however, they found her NOT GUILTY"! I was not on that jury. I don't know what I would have decided if I had been, but she is NOT GUILTY! Only God has the RIGHT to judge her now!
    Our government, Our Constitution, Our laws give us the right to trial by jury NOT TRIAL BY MEDIA!!!
    WAKE UP AMERICA!!! Believing everything you see on the news is like going back to childhood where one cannot differentiate between what one sees in a movie and what one sees in real life!
    Next, will you be buying a Superman costume and stepping out onto the interstate to stop speeding traffic?????
    ANYONE who believes everything they see on the "NEWS" is a total moron!
  • I wonder if he has washed the half-time show from his bunk-mate out of his bung yet? Got away with murder 2X, now dies a little more each day in the iron bar motel...
  • The real undercurrent of this article is pure racism, as for example, "...from his fears of being killed by Aryan Warriors gang members while behind bars." The author blatantly attempts to encourage racial violence against OJ. In fact, many of the posts above are racists comments about OJ. Why? Is it because they claim he killed two white people? Well, the facts are he submitted to the system of justice and was found NOT GUILTY. Where is the outrage for these commentors for Emmitt Till, Abram Smith, Thomas Shipp, the Scottsbore Boys and so many others who were murdered by the filthy whites who, to this very day, have not been brought to justice while there are thousands of witnesses to the crimes? Tell me, where is your outrageous comments for those victims!
  • I second your emotions too. The guilty go scott free plain and simple. I shall not judge so they say; however, I know there is a difference between apples and oranges. We the community should judge if we have to live in this world. May "ALL" the devils burn in "Eternal Hell" and there is a Hell....! I hope I don't go there while I'm running my mouth. I'm a sinner too.
  • he did not get away with murder denvertc, and what is with the homo remarks? do you obsess about sex in prison?
  • I honestly believe yall proved a point by locking OJ up in jail not because no kidnapping and robbing and sentencing him for 33 years, but because alot of ppl really believed he was responsible for murdering his wife and her lover....why should he have to rot in jail, it's not worth it. These rappers going around assaulting and killing ppl almost everyday to prove themselves to be hard and they don't get hardly no time, why??? Also, since yall treating this 64yr old man like he's a damn sniper he should throw all kinds of parties in jail, afterall, he got life if you add the yrs he has left.
  • What exactly takes place at prison party? (Almost afraid to ask).
  • Sure, O.J. can get away with anything. He's got the privileges unlike any other inmate in the world. Perhaps even more than Charles Manson. My punishment for O.J. would be to shoot him in the foot, then the other foot. After that, both knees. Then, shoulders, neck, BALLS. Then let him feel the pain for a while. As a finally, after a few days, shoot him where his heart would be. As if he has one. Rot in hell you bastard.
