On that day, my beloved NY Knicks found themselves playing game 5 in the NBA Finals. THE KNICKS, preempted!! Orange and Blue was replaced with White. A white bronco traveling down a highway protecting what had been reported as a suicidal man who I believed because of the image he had cultivated was filled with unbearable pain.
20 years later, the truth of what happened to OJ Simpsons wife Nicole and friend Ron never really came to light. The only fact that anyone could agree on was that the NY KNICKS won that night!!! But, this was before social media became a powerful force and all of the alternative networks were created. This was during a time where you rarely used your cellphone because you didn't want to waste minutes. It was vastly different. I mean the game was on a split screen featuring the chase goodness sakes. The birth or rather rebirth of the split screen. And as much as I loved my Knicks, I can't lie the chase had me.
So today on June, 17th 2014 as many remember what they were doing on the day and what ran through their mind, I'm reminded of the comfort of my now deceased grandmothers kitchen. So much has changed since then. So much has transpired since then. And funny enough, so much remains the same. 20 years...WOW!! Where did the time go?
