The O.J. Simpson Bronco Chase was 20 Years Ago Today (6/17) – Where Were You?
If you’re 30-something or older, you probably remember where you were tonight 20 years ago, especially if you were watching TV.
I know CNN carried it live and I believe even the NBA Finals were interrupted to bring us O.J. Simpson and the slow Bronco police chase through the Los Angeles area.
I remember that night well. I had the TV on, not really watching it as my girlfriend at the time and I were doing a puzzle. She went for a relaxing bath, I turned to watch TV, and there it was, the chase.
That Bronco chase changed how we look at salacious news, as it topped the news broadcast days and weeks following, and then as the circus entered the trial it got even crazier.
