((Inside court, when Daniel Petrocelli, attorney for the father of murder victim Ron Goldman began his opening statements, he told the jury a familiar story. How on the night of June 12, 1994, Ron Goldman returned a pair of glasses to Simpson's ex-wife Nicole and both were savagely murdered on her front walkway. "Ron Goldman," he told the jury, "died with his eyes open and saw the person who killed him and Nicole." And, Petrocelli said, he would prove "Ron and Nicole died at the hands of OJ Simpson." And he told them Simpson doesn't have an alibi, because "he was not seen by anybody alive for one hour and 20 minutes", right at the time of the murders. Petrocelli also said he'd show them a picture proving Simpson also owned a pair of size 12 Bruno Magli shoes, just like those which left bloody footprints at the murder scene. In deposition, Simpson said he'd never wear such ugly shoes. And in an interview with CBS News, he balked at the question: REPORTER: WHAT ABOUT THOSE BRUNO MAGLI SHOES? OJ: I CAN'T GET INTO THAT. READ THE DEPOSITION. REPORTER: BUT THEY SAY THEY HAVE A PICTURE. SIMPSON: I'M NOT GETTING INTO THAT. READ THE DEPOSITION. And while the story was familiar, Petrocelli promised to introduce evidence the criminal prosecutors did not, like Simpson's statement to the police...and his flight in the Bronco...and his so-called suicide letter:
BILL WHITAKER: Through it all, the jury seemed riveted. Simpson at times looked pained. He's likely to have more discomfort as the plaintiff's attorneys continue their opening statements...trying to convince this jury to find Simpson liable for murder. Bill Whitaker, CBS News, Los Angeles.))

((MARILYN BUSSEY:)) Blacksburg and Christiansburg are a combined 6 and 15 in district play most of the way through their first year in the Blue Ridge, but the coaches like what they see. ((MICKEY:))
Whose hot in Double AA?? To name a few, Staunton River's Crystal English is averaging about 12 points a game. ((TOM KARNES:))
Jefferson Forest's Dawn Coleman goes 10 deep, but counts heavily on Melinda Minnick, the teams leading scorer, who averages about 15 points a game. ((DAWN COLEMAN:)) IN SINGLE A, WE'VE TEMPORARILY LOST A GREAT KING FROM THE COACHING RANKS, RADFORD HEAD COACH BRENDA KING HAS LEFT HER POST TO FOCUS ON HER FAMILY, WE HOPE SHE RETURNS SOON. RICK CORMANDY IS HER REPLACEMENT.
No one can replace Shawsville as the top scorer in the Three rivers. Her 23
points per game average is still #1.

((MEGAN:))
Floyd's Sara Conner is the 5th leading district scorer at 14 points a pop.
The Three Rivers will lose one of it's stars next year - to softball. Glenvar's Amy Layman has decided to play her first love at Roanoke College. ((AMY LAYMAN:))
