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 friends 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 while behind bars. The post OJ Simpson reportedly through a Super Bowl viewing party in his prison cell appeared first on Larry Brown Sports. Related posts: O.J. Simpson Marrying Pen Pal in Prison?
