The Juice is Loose — even if he’s really not and he’s actually behind bars for the next 33 years of his life. Despite being freedom-inclined, former NFL running back O.J. Simpson isn’t allowing prison to hold him back from being the life of the party. According to multiple reports, Simpson threw a Super Bowl party in prison and it’s the best prison Super Bowl party we’ve seen in years.
The New York Post reported that not only did Simpson throw a lavish Super Bowl party behind bars and not only was he the life of the party, but everyday is a party for O.J. and he’s the life of the prison.
Simpson is one of the few inmates who has his own TV, reports The Post’s Richard Johnson, so his friends crammed into his 80-square-foot cell to watch. “If you have the money, you can buy a TV at the inmate store and put it in your cell,” Simpson’s producer friend Norman Pardo said. There was no shortage of potential guests because he’s so popular. “He’s like the Godfather of the prison now,” Pardo said of the one-time NFL great.
No word on whether or not the inmates attending were allowed to use tortilla chips with sharp edges or the less dangerous ones that are shaped like bowls. Simpson is currently 65-years old and will likely die in prison since a 33-years sentence means a release when he’s almost 100 years old. But despite the fact he’ll likely never be a free man again, that’s not stopping Simpsons from allegedly throwing a Super Bowl party and living the high life behind bars.
Look for the book I Didn’t Do It: Prison Super Bowl Party Edition to hit stores next fall.
