3. My BikeMap app indicated that yesterday I completed my longest ride ever. It was 20.3 miles! I did not realize that it was a new PR.

4. I am getting a number of small projects completed that fall into that final 5 percent. The small ones that are not critical but yet improve the quality of life. Yesterday, for instance, I installed the sound bar and sub woofer on our main TV. I did most of the work wile watching the Ravens turn in another dismal second-half performance.

5. Today in History. October 3, 1995. At the end of a sensational trial, former football star O.J. Simpson is acquitted of the brutal 1994 double murder of his estranged wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. In the epic 252-day trial, Simpson’s “dream team” of lawyers employed creative and controversial methods to convince jurors that Simpson’s guilt had not been proved “beyond a reasonable doubt,” thus surmounting what the prosecution called a “mountain of evidence” implicating him as the murderer.

Orenthal James Simpson—a Heisman Trophy winner, star running back with the Buffalo Bills, and popular television personality—married Nicole Brown in 1985. He reportedly regularly abused his wife and in 1989 pleaded no contest to a charge of spousal battery. In 1992, she left him and filed for divorce. On the night of June 12, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were stabbed and slashed to death in the front yard of Mrs. Simpson’s condominium in Brentwood, Los Angeles. By June 17, police had gathered enough evidence to charge O.J. Simpson with the murders.
