Ten Years of Whhhhhhhhhy????

As Emily pointed out, today marks the tenth anniversary of the Nancy Kerrigan pipe assault, which was far and away the second most-overhyped news story of the ‘90s (behind the O.J. Simpson case, and ahead of Y2K.) In honor of the occasion, I’d really love to see Geraldo convene a discussion panel with Kerrigan, Tonya Harding, Jeff Gillooly, Shawn Eckhardt, and Shane Stant. I still chuckle ten years later when I remember David Letterman’s Top Ten Ways to Mispronounce “Jeff Gillooly.”

UPDATE: Oops, it's not '94 anymore, and actually been 11 years. Apologies to Mr. Gillooly.

Ah yes, A, the Menendez Brothers. Them and OJ cost Gil Garcetti his job.
