THIS IS A.C. ... YOU KNOW WHO I AM: I cannot say enough things about how great ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary was in depicting the craziness of June 17, 1994 -- the low-speed white Bronco chase-slash-suicide watch, the NBA Finals, the World Cup opening in Chicago, Arnold Palmer's final US Open round and the New York Rangers victory parade -- yes, all in one day. Watch it, folks, and especially for the behind the scenes footage of folks like Bob Costas and Chris Berman trying to make sense of how to cover all of this at once. (Plus, you get to see a mustachioed Keith Olbermann and an employed Craig Kilborn.)
Here's a question which you can answer whether or not you've seen the documentary yet: suppose O.J. Simpson did kill himself along or at the end of the drive as his Robert Kardashian-read letter and conversation with police during their pursuit strongly suggested he would. Tell us how today's world is different. Do we ever learn who Greta van Susteren or Jeffrey Toobin are? Does it change media coverage of car chases going forward? Does Leno still beat Letterman in the ratings? Do Kardashian's daughters still end up having a thing for star athletes? What replaces the Chewbacca Defense and Jackie Chiles? Your wild speculations are welcome.
