China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Con­victed felon OJ Simp­son, who was granted pa­role by the Ne­vada Board of Pris­ons last week and is el­i­gi­ble for re­lease on Oct 1, re­mains on the in­vi­ta­tion list for the an­nual Pro Foot­ball Hall of Fame cer­e­mony.

Asked whether Simp­son will be wel­come, Hall of Fame of­fi­cials told ESPN: “All Hall of Famers are in­vited to at­tend the an­nual en­shrine­ment.”

Simp­son, 70, was granted pa­role on Thurs­day af­ter serv­ing al­most nine years of a 33-year sen­tence for a 2008 armed-rob­bery con­vic­tion. He was a run­ning back for the Buf­falo Bills and San Fran­cisco 49ers dur­ing an 11-year NFL ca­reer which ended in 1979.
