Adam Endel, a commissioner for the Nevada Board of Parole, caused a stir during O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing on Thursday by wearing a novelty Kansas City Chiefs tie.

Yes, that’s about the last sentence we thought we’d write when we woke up this morning, but it’s true.

As he asked Simpson about his possible plans for life outside prison, Endel repped his favorite NFL team, a franchise that Simpson only played five games against during his career. (In case you’re curious, Simpson carried the ball 104 times for 458 yards and five touchdowns against Kansas City.)

What would cause Endel, who graduated from Central Missouri State in 1989, to wake up on Thursday and inspire countless bad Halloween costumes this fall? No one’s quite certain, but Twitter certainly had fun with the most random sartorial celebrity since Ken Bone of Trump-Clinton debate fame.

At any rate, if any current or former Chiefs are thinking about getting in trouble, it would seem that Nevada is the place to do it.
