Oprah Dreams of O.J. Confessing to Her

It’s a long-running joke that anyone looking to unburden their soul of a troubling transgression will confess to Oprah Winfrey on her television show. But the sports figure who probably has the largest outstanding sin to account for, O.J. Simpson, remains the white whale for Oprah, causing her to dream about the possibility that the Hall of Fame running back who was acquitted of murdering his wife, Nicole, and Ron Goldman will come clean about what 99.9 percent of the population assume.

Oprah, not one to be deterred, said she’s going to get Simpson to give up the goods.

“And I am going to make that happen, people. I don’t just want the interview. I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson.”

Simpson is in prison in Nevada for armed robbery.

Indiana Lawmakers Say NFL Work Stoppage Would Have "Devastating Impact" on Economy

The Associated Press reports that Indiana “Sens. Dan Coats and Richard Lugar, along with all nine House members from the state” sent a letter to Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith urging the league to avoid a work stoppage. It would have a “devastating impact” on the state, which will host next year’s Super Bowl.

It can’t be a good sign that the lawmakers are concerned about a game that’s being played 11 months from now, can it?
