From an autograph show in suburban Chicago, O.J. Simpson. The ejection capped a less-than-memorable month for the Juice; on July 22 a judge ordered him to pay $25,000 in damages to DirecTV for pirating the company's signal at his home in Miami. Last Saturday he showed up at a memorabilia convention in Rosemont, Ill., but neither he nor the company who owned the booth he appeared in had cleared his visit. A spokesman for the convention said Simpson had been denied permission in the past. Simpson was escorted from the building without incident about an hour after he arrived.
