O.J. Simpson Held Super Bowl Party in His Jail Cell

O.J. Simpson, who is serving a 33-year sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, threw a Super Bowl party in prison, with inmates cramming into his 80-square-foot cell to watch the game on his personal TV on Sunday.

The 65-year-old Simpson was convicted in 2008 of kidnapping and armed robbery.

According to the New York Post, Simpson bought the TV from a store inside the prison.

"If you have the money, you can buy a TV at the inmate store and put it in your cell," Norman Pardo, a friend of Simpson's, told the New York Post. "He's like the Godfather of the prison now."

Ironically, Simpson played for the San Francisco 49ers, who lost to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday,  for two years after being traded by the Buffalo Bills for draft picks before the 1978 season.

Pardo is plugging a movie, titled 'Unpromotable,' which chronicles his job of rejuvenating Simpson's reputation after he was acquitted in 1995 of the double murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her alleged lover Ronald Goldman.

"It shows what it's like to promote the most unpromotable man on the planet," said Pardo.
