OJ Simpson is playing in the Arena Football League.
No, not the former USC and NFL star running back and man famous for being accused of killing his ex-wife and another man. While he was acquitted of those charges, he’s currently incarcerated in Nevada.
This OJ Simpson plays for the AFL’s Kansas City Command, for whom he even wears No. 23 – the inverse of the famous Simpson’s old No. 32. But despite being a 5-foot-9 wide receiver from Missouri Western, the Command’s Simpson still gets compared to his namesake.
“When I went to Spokane (to face the Shock) for my first game of the season, their fans are outrageous and of course they were making all the O.J. Simpson jokes, the glove jokes, everything,” he said, according to an ESPN.com feature.
“I like it only because it adds fuel to the fire. I believe I scored my first touchdown that game, and after that I didn’t hear nothing else.”
We just hope he doesn’t drive a white Bronco.
