How I Helped OJ Get Away With Murder

O.J. SimpsonRemember when the Goldman Family (in particular, Fred and Kim Goldman: father and sister of Ron Goldman) came out with the hypothetically based book that was taken from O.J.’s words: If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer? O.J. Simpson must have felt that he was getting absolutely no love after his lawyers convinced America a jury that if it doesn’t fit, you must acquit. I bet O.J. will really hate life once his agent of 18 years comes out with a new book in April, right around the time that O.J. will be on trial for armed-robbery and kidnapping charges in Las Vegas.

O.J.’s former sports agent, Mike Gilbert, came up with quite the title for his upcoming best seller: How I Helped OJ Get Away With Murder. Forget hypotheticals, Gilbert is going to just come out and state the facts.

This from The First Post:

Gilbert, who claims to have represented Simpson for 18 years, will “detail OJ’s late-night confession” and offer new evidence showing that Simpson did kill his ex-wife and Goldman.

Gilbert also promises “information on Gilbert’s crucial role in obtaining the not guilty verdict and why he stayed silent for so long.”

The Make-a-Wish Foundation will receive a portion of the money earned from sale of Gilbert’s book. Not sure why this particular charity was picked, but if How I Helped OJ Get Away With Murder is not juicy enough, you can at least know that your hard earned money is going to a noble organization.

    Have you read the book since you posted this? I just finished it, and it is pretty incredible. I know, I know–I sound crazy and sympathetic. But honestly, this book looks tabloid, but it’s not. Gilbert comes clean about everything. Yes, everyone knows OJ did it. But Gilbert delves into why, how, when, etc. He tells how he made the glove not fit O.J.’s hand, how O.J. made money in jail, and basically how OJ went from super sports star to murderer. It is really a heart-wrenching book. I know I sound completely nuts saying that, but it is really a story of the human condition. I would encourage people to just go to Amazon and read a couple of pages using search inside and you’ll see what I mean. This book is good. And I’m not into tabloids, at all. I just picked it up started reading a few pages and was hooked. I can’t explain it. This book is a tragedy and a really good read all at the same time.

    And for anybody that is a sports agent, I think you will be able to relate to Mike in an odd way – in a career way not in an I-Helped-A-Murderer type way.
