Here's a Super Bowl party you're probably pretty glad you didn't get an invitation to: according to the New York Post, O.J. Simpson threw a Super Bowl party in his cell at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada.

Simpson's cell is only 80 square feet, but he still has his own television. (Hope it's a flat-screen.) The Post quoted Simpson's friend Norman Pardo as saying, "If you have the money, you can buy a TV at the inmate store and put it in your cell."

And as you can imagine, a guy with a television in prison is a popular fellow — "the Godfather of the prison," as Pardo said. The Super Bowl party was apparently quite the must-watch event, and hey, good for O.J.

We're not going to make jokes about which teams or players he was pulling for, because sometimes you let the easy (and potentially libelous) ones go right by. But we'll bet you can guess.

Simpson, age 65, is currently serving a 33-year sentence for a September 2007 armed robbery in Las Vegas. He will be in prison until at least 2017 before he is eligible for parole.
