The Suit that Acquit Doesn't Fit

I was glad to read yesterday that the suit that OJ Simpson wore when the jury acquitted him will not be accepted by the Smithsonian to be put on display.
I guess that you could say that the suit that acquit just doesn't fit with their plans. This also makes Fred Goldman happy because he has been in a custody dispute over who owns the suit for years. I must tell you that I wouldn't go to the Smithsonian to see it and I doubt that many would.
I did post this picture to demonstrate something though. Does anyone right off the top of their head know who that gentleman standing right next to OJ on his right is? Yep that is Robert Kardashian. He was OJ's friend and attorney who sadly passed away in 2003. What is this man's legacy that he left us? (Pause - Wait for it) Yes you guessed it his daughters are the famous for being famous Kardashian sisters who sadly our culture likes to keep up with. So among the numerous things that the OJ trial spawned you can thank him for them too.
So any thoughts on any of that? Sorry if I rambled and made no sense.

I'm not a Kardashian follower, but did have to watch the episode where they got their butts kicked in the boxing ring.

I am very happy the Smithsonian will not accept his suit. However, it is disturbing that Ron Goldman has been battling for custody of the suit. I'm sorry this man lost his son, but is it your goal in life to be the pesky fly in OJ's life until death do they part? Having had a murder or two in my family I don't let the tragedy

Lucky us.

Why would anyone WANT that suit? I just don't get it.

Just me... said...

I can proudly say that I have never watched the Kardashian reality TV show..
As for the OJ debacle, don't get me started... :):):)

I don't know how any of the surviving lawyers of that case sleep at night. I'm also glad the suit won't be in the Smithsonian. He's a POS.

I don't get the goldman thing either. He's never going to get the settlement and going over every little thing that may have a value is an obsession. The sad part is the freakin' thing DOES have value and someone will pay a lot of money for it.

I am proud to say I have never watched the Kardashians, nor do I ever have any desire to.

Crazy. Custody of a suit? Give me a break!

Well thanks for the info, I assumed it was going to go to the Smithsonian and I thought...

Holy Crap, can we as a nation devolve any further? Glad to hear it was rejected.

But c'mon...Kim Kardashian is freakin' HAWWWWWWT. Cheers Doc!!

I never cease to be amazed by the arrogance of OJ. He actually thought his suit was some kind of national treasure that it should be in the Smithsonian? Crazy.

Also, I remember the look on Kardashian's face when OJ was acquitted. He was in complete disbelief. He knew OJ was guilty and you could see it by the look on his face.

Is this on a deeper level?

Simpson was guilty. You knew it, I knew it, we knew it yet he 'got off'.

Over here...

The Yorkshire Ripper (who killed 18 ladies and tried for 7 more (give or take) is up for parole....WHAT???

The two kids who murdered Jamie Bulger? They were released on licence years back.

One has just been locked up again.

What a fucking world.

More voddy needed to fend off depression.

Be careful out there old bean.

I think OJ should wear the suit for a walk on the green mile.
