“If your going to be a superstar, in sports of anything else, it’s your mind-not your body-that’ll get you there…It’s concentration, the ability to blot out everything that doesn’t help you do your best.” – O.J. Simpson LOVELOCK , NV- The question for O. J. Simpson after seeing Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada in the rear view mirror of life is does he have enough “juice” left in his proverbial tank to “blot out everything and everyone that doesn’t help him do his best?” The 70-year old former NFL star, Hollywood actor and television commentator was set free Sunday after he signed his release paperwork just before midnight. He disappeared into the darkness minutes after his release. Simpson served nine years for armed robbery for a botched 2007 robbery heist at a Las Vegas hotel room. He was arrested after he and two armed associates barged into a hotel room in Las Vegas and … [Read more...] about FREE AT LAST Only Time Can Tell What’s Next For O.J. Simpson

Ryan W. Miller USA TODAY Published 4:26 p.m. UTC Jul 7, 2018 Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said backing President Donald Trump in certain cases has been harder than defending O.J. Simpson and other celebrity clients, according to an interview with The New York Times. When asked, "Is this actually worse than when you defended O.J. Simpson?" of his defense of the president, Dershowitz replied: "Of course. Or Claus von Bulow or Leona Helmsley or Michael Milken or Mike Tyson. This is much worse than all that." Dershowitz continued, "In those cases people were critical of me, but they were prepared to discuss it. They were prepared to have a dialogue. Here, the people that I’m objecting to want to stop the dialogue. They don’t want to have the conversation." Dershowitz was an appellate adviser to O.J. Simpson during his murder trial and also defended Claus von Bulow. The attorney's response comes amid recent media … [Read more...] about Alan Dershowitz: Backing Donald Trump has been worse than defending O.J. Simpson
opinion Kevin S. Aldridge Cincinnati Enquirer Opinion Published 9:42 p.m. UTC Jun 28, 2018 Jeff Ruby knows a thing or two about tossing famous people out of restaurants. That's why I figured the restaurateur, famed for refusing to serve O.J. Simpson during Kentucky Derby festivities in 2007, would be the perfect person to ask about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders getting bounced from a Virginia restaurant over the weekend. "She got OJ'ed," Ruby said. That's a phrase he coined after the Simpson encounter to describe when a restaurant refuses to serve someone. Ruby said the owner of the Red Hen restaurant, Stephanie Wilkinson, was well within her rights to deny Sanders service, but their motivations weren’t the same. "This (Sanders situation) was about politics. O.J. had nothing to do with politics," Ruby said, noting Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen because of her connection to President Donald Trump. While Ruby doesn't consider what … [Read more...] about He kicked out O.J. Simpson, banned Donald Trump from his restaurant. But what about Sarah Sanders?

With the No. 1 overall pick in the 1968 NFL Draft, the Vikings were thinking hard about a player from the University of Southern California. They took the Trojans’ star right tackle, Ron Yary, but not until exploring another option. USC was coming off the 1967 national championship with Yary blocking for tailback O.J. Simpson, who rushed for 1,543 yards and finished second in voting for the Heisman Trophy. Simpson was a junior and ineligible for the draft, but that didn’t stop the Vikings from trying to come up with a way to acquire Simpson. “We actually tried to trade the pick to somebody so we could get O.J. the next year,’’ said Bud Grant, the hall of fame coach who was entering his second second with the Vikings in 1968. “We thought maybe we could go through the league and we could postpone the pick until the next year, but there was no avenue for us. “It was more of a fantasy. So, we put that to bed and we all agreed Yary was … [Read more...] about NFL draft: Vikings couldn’t land O.J. Simpson, but Ron Yary worked out just fine
