OK, this isn't new but I have a twist.
Everyone(except George Bush, apparently) knew where they were when JFK was shot.
Everyone knows where they were when 9/11 happened.
This was asked on a ESPN sports radio show, from the guy who's doc O.J. Simpson: Made In America will air on June 11 on ESPN - supposedly eight or so
hours of brilliance, it's going to be a long one - "Where were you when the O.J. verdict was handed down".
I honestly don't think I watched it live, as I didn't have a opinion at that time. I didn't know, I worked days at the time and never got a chance,
even though I didn't really care, to watch the trial and even though I worked at a newspaper I still really didn't know what to think. I should have
known more as it was the trial of the century but I really didn't know.
I truly do not know where I was when this happened. Am I the only one?
I do remember where I was when the Rodney King crap happened but I didn't know it at the time. I just saw cop cars blocking the streets around the
traditional old black neighborhoods here in Las Vegas. I was at a English pub drinking Double Diamond with a guy and some chicks from work, watching
Shawn Kemp dunk on whoever it was that night. I had no clue that verdict had happened and didn't until the next day. On my way home from the bar I
saw the cops, and luckily they did respond or there would have been some havoc wreaked on downtown Las Vegas but I had no clue why that was happening
other than something bad.
I really don't think, but I honestly cannot remember, where I was when this was handed out. Heck, I may not have known until later in the day for all
I know, hours possibly. News didn't travel that fast in those days.
