I remember watching Boeheim play basketball for the Scranton Miners in the EPBL back in the 60's. Lot's of action. Many players were over the hill but played hard.

Accusing O'Reilly of "[FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: yellow"]reality deficiency disorder[/FONT]," Epstein offered a number of key details that differ from the Killing Kennedy story, including the location of the suicide and the audibility of the gunshot.
