O.J. Simpson described 'blood and stuff' in hypothetical murder scenario

He said in the interview that he didn't remember saying that, but he did remember Nicole's mother questioning him: "I just recall Judy Brown pulling me over, looking me in the eye and saying to me, 'O.J., did you have anything to do with this?' and I know I told her, 'No.'"
A recital, hitting golf balls to relax, and then ...
Simpson said he had flown from New York to Los Angeles to be there on June 12, 1994 -- which became the date of the killings -- for his daughter Sydney's dance recital.
He described seeing Nicole at the recital: "It was almost like she was trying to be a teenager again ... dating all these much younger guys ... wearing the shortest, tightest thing she was wearing ... sometimes you think something is inappropriate."
After the recital was over he didn't go out to dinner with the family because Nicole didn't want him there, according to the Fox program.
Simpson said he went home instead and started chipping golf balls to relax, but he couldn't.
Friends were telling him about the fast life Nicole was leading, and Simpson was concerned for his children.
Before he went through a killing scenario, he told his interviewer that it was "difficult" to do because it's "hypothetical."
He added, "I know and I accept the fact that people are gonna feel whatever way they're going to feel."
That night in '94
At one point in the interview, Simpson referenced a friend, whom he identified only as "Charlie," who Simpson says went with him to confront Brown. Charlie had a knife -- a knife that belonged to Simpson, who said he kept it under the seat in his car. The knife would be used as the murder weapon in the scenario.
Simpson said while he and "Charlie" were there, a "guy" showed up. That guy was Ron Goldman.
"In the mood I was in I started having words with him," Simpson said, describing Goldman as "a guy that I didn't really recognize. I may have seen him around, but I really didn't recognize him."
Interviewer Regan, reading from Simpson's "If I Did It" book, said Goldman had claimed he came to return a pair of glasses left at the restaurant the Browns dined at after the recital.
Simpson recalled words to that effect but said it was "immaterial" because he was concerned about "everything that was going on ... was fed up with it, I guess."
Simpson continued his scenario, saying Nicole came out of her house and they begin to "have words ... who is this guy, why is he here, what's going on?"
Interviewer Regan, recalling from the book, quoted Nicole as saying, "This is my house get the F out of here."
"Which I didn't like..." O.J. chimed in.
"As things got heated, I just remember Nicole fell and hurt herself and this guy kind of got into a karate thing. And I said, 'Well, you think you can kick my ass?' And I remember I grabbed the knife -- I do remember that portion, taking a knife from Charlie -- and to be honest after that I don't remember, except I'm standing there and there's all kind of stuff around and ..." he said, his voice trailing off.
