It was indeed formed after the murders, but before the bronco ride.
Also, for those seeking OJ jokes, check out alt.humor. There is
already a listing of "canonical" OJ jokes, most of which are unbearbly
bad, but include references to football, hertz, orange juice, usc,
interracial marriage, waiters, etc. Fascinating. There is also a
bulletin board called alt.oj-simpson.die.die.die.
And I heard there's already a quickie paperback on the market.
