It has come down to OJ Simpson vs. Rae Carruth. Simpson—who has paid about $10 of the $33.5 million judgment against him for the “wrongful deaths” of two people—wrote a fictionalized account of the murders called If I Did It. Truly despicable. If he wins today, he can celebrate with his cell mates at Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada, where he is serving a 33-year sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping, among other felonies.
Rae Carruth is also in prison, at Nash Correctional Institution in North Carolina, where he’ll be until 2018. He was convicted of conspiring to kill a woman who was eight months old with his own child. (Can’t believe I just wrote that sentence.) The woman lived long enough to call 911 after Carruth blocked her car while a friend of his shot her. He became a fugitive, hiding in the trunk of a car with cash, candy, and yes, jars of his own poo. It’s important to note that the team he played for at the time, the Carolina Panthers, released him because of a morals clause in his contract.
Tough choice. Vote away!

We’ll crown a champion Monday. For legal reasons, as well as a lack of suitable highlights, there will be no One Shining Moment montage.
