O.J. Simpson’s post-parole life appears to be kicking off in Florida, as there has been a Juice sighting there at a bar. The disgraced NFL player watched the Bucs-Rams game on Sunday at Bo’s Pub in Ft. Lauderdale, where he was reportedly drinking and watching the game.
O.J. is seen chilling near a bunch of people and having a good time in photographs acquired by TMZ. O.J. appeared to be with those guys, so he wasn’t there by himself. And, as is customary, he was recognized and approached for photos which, according to eyewitnesses, he gladly accepted.
A young group of girls seemed to have been going head over heels for O.J., as one photo shows them near his crew and O.J. not far away with a large grin on his face. We know O.J. likes to comment on the condition of the game and key moments during the season, including Antonio Brown’s ungraceful exit from the Buccaneers franchise, so it’s no surprise that he’s keeping up with football.
So, yeah, the fact that he’s watching a huge game in public isn’t exactly breaking news. What’s notable is that this appears to be one of O.J.’s first public appearances since being freed early from his Nevada parole.
He’s been confined for the better part of 5 years now, following his release from jail in 2017. At the very least, he’s out of California, where we know he won’t be welcomed, especially by the Browns.
