Bronco Chase 25yrs Later

25 yrs ago we were in a pub in Perth, Australia on our way home from Somalia watching this shitshow. Now this loser has a Twitter account sending out Father's Day greetings. WTF?

I always wanted to buy a white bronco, does that mean I can finally pass?

I think they are coming into their own again. White will probably be all the rage now!

I was washing dishes in a shitty restaurant.
"The real problem was being able to stick it out, to sit in an office under the orders of a wee man in a dark gray suit and look out of the window and recall the bush country, the waving palms, the smell of sweat and cordite, the grunts of the men hauling jeeps over the river crossings, the copper-tasting fears just before the attack, and the wild, cruel joy of being alive afterward. To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."

I don't know why I remember this so vividly but my brothers and I were sitting in the Gator Gulch bar/pub in New Smyrna Beach (might have been Edgewater) watching Clemens pitch and the NBA final (Houston and somebody). They interrupted the NBA but not the MLB game.

With Twitter he should def be able to track down the real killer(s).

I was one of the people standing on an overpass over the 405 freeway when OJ and Al drove past...

Holy shit!! I was living in the "OC" at this time. I had EAS'd less than two months earlier. I was on my way home from my brand new job in Irvine and didn't understand why the traffic was so fucked up... then I saw it on the news when I got home. Wow - 25 years. I'm old.
