The first time Jason Simpson saw his father O.J. play football, he was surprised how bad he was. And that's bad, as in not good. "What's funny is that I only saw my father play once," said Jason, 16. "He was with the 49ers and he didn't get to play until the third quarter. He fumbled the ball. From then on, I thought he was a bad football player. Everyone was saying how great he was. I just thought they were saying it to make me feel good."

There were no cakes, no gifts, no party for O.J. Simpson on Saturday as he marked his 47th birthday in jail, awaiting trial on charges of murdering his ex-wife and a friend of hers. Instead, there were visits from family members and F. Lee Bailey, one of his lawyers. But the visits could not divert him from the grim reality of a birthday passed in a cramped jail cell. "He's in tears," said Robert Shapiro, his lead defense attorney, who spoke to Simpson by phone. "It's a horrible day.

7 TONIGHT BOLSA GRANDE HIGH A pivotal game for two teams with Garden Grove League title hopes. Although each must still play Rancho Alamitos, and Pacifica must also play Santiago, the winner will be the team to beat. The Lobos have the county's leading rusher, Andrew Niumata, who is coming off a 416-yard, eight-touchdown performance against Bolsa Grande. Quarterback Ao Sualua passes enough to keep defenses honest. Pacifica can run but is more dangerous passing.
