We were at a bar, wondering if it was like a for real chase, considering how slow Al C was driving.

At the camp ground outside of Six Flags Over Georgia for a week of fun...I was 13...14 at the time
And, yes, the camp ground was part of six flags, we weren't just sleeping wherevs.

I was coming out of the doctors office and MH said "OJ is on the run..."
And then we went back to his apartment and watched it unfold on tv.

I was driving my 58 Chevy which had no radio or A/C. I was hot. My friends and I had to go save someone who was broken down at a gas station.
I remember watching parts of it when we went to dinner that night.

I was in middle school. And my mom turned it on the tv...like I had any desire to watch it. My brother decided to be funny and write "Free OJ" on the car window during the trial. All the old people at church thought we were giving out free orange juice.

I was 20
I don't remember where I was. But I do remember watching it on tv at some point and thinking "That's not a chase, it's a motorcade.. why don't they just stop him.. he's crawling?"
It just seemed too weird.

We were at my friends' house watching game 5 of the NBA playoffs when they interrupted it to cover the car chase. We were not pleased.

A relationship without trust is like a car without gas. You can stay in it all you want, but it won't go anywhere.

Kinda t/j - I missed the car chase while it was occurring. However, I do remember clearly where I was when the verdict was announced.
It had been widely publicized that it would be announced a certain time (noon, I think). Our company cafeteria always had CNN running on tvs mounted overhead. Went down to the cafeteria shortly before time, and I have never seen the place so crowded - or so quiet! You seriously could have heard a pin drop while we all waited.
End t/j. Not intending to start a dialogue/debate on the verdict here, because that's a whole OTHER ball of wax. Just remarking on what big news it was at the time.

I had taken the ex to San Antonio for a long weekend trip and when we checked into the hotel it was on a TV in the bar... We proceeded to drink way too many margaritas while laughing and watching it with a dozen or so other bar patrons...

I was working at a company that had been started by Robert Kardashian so when he came on TV to "rep" OJ while he was driving down the freeway, people were racing around saying "OMG BK is on TV!" Lol.
And then later that day I went to my second job, as a PA for a Hollywood VIP whose kids played with OJ's and we gossiped.
Living in LA. It was just full of weird experiences like that.

I was pregnant with DS2 & was glued to the TV.. I remember seeing the pain & shock in Bobby Kardashians eyes.
I followed the entire trial EVERY day faithfully too
"Sorry" works when a mistake is made, but not when trust is broken. So in life, make mistakes, but never break trust. Because forgiving is easy, but forgetting & trusting again is sometimes impossible
