I jumped into the WABAC Machine all by myself and traveled back 20 years ago to 1994. I got out in Bear,
Delaware. As I got out I saw a man that looked and
smelled like Dog Dad, but the man is much thinner and his hair is dark.
I slowly realize the man is a young Dog Dad. I try to say hi, but Dog Dad just smiles at me. He is busy visiting his friend Jim. Dad and Jim, worked together, played racquetball and softball during the four years he lived in
North Dakota. The two of them sit down and turn on the TV. On the TV a white Ford Bronco is driving down a road in California and is followed by police cars with flashing lights. Dog Dad and Jim are mesmerized by the unfolding events. I quietly slip back into the WABAC machine and come back home.
|OJ - 1990|
When I got back, I asked Dad about that car chase. Dad smiles, then he tells me that twenty years ago that police were following OJ. I give Dad a confused look. He laughs and says, this OJ is not the cat that lives with our cyber-paw chum Skye, but a man that had played football with Buffalo. He told me that in the months that followed many people in the
followed the Court Room proceedings in California.
As we talked I could see that Dad had once admired this football player. The
events that unfolded after 17 June 1994 changed all that.
Dad tells me most people that lived in the
will remember where they were when this happened. After our talk Dog Dad comes over, gives me a hug and a kisses my forehead.
Do you remember where you were?
