     ESPN's Jimmy Roberts, outside the federal courthouse in New
York, where boxing promoter Don King's wire fraud trial entered
its second day:  "In the trial of such a colorful and bombastic
man, Day Two was a tedious, sleep-inducing examination of
insurance contract details and minutia."  ESPN legal analyst Ken
Caruso:  "There were no fireworks in court today.  But, each side
made some subtle and important points" ("SportsCenter," 10/11).
Prosecutors "tried to show [King] got the idea for the fraud
scheme he is charged with after he ran into trouble collecting
insurance for an earlier fight" (N.Y. TIMES, 10/12).  NEWSDAY's
Greg Logan:  "Somehow, all the jurors managed to stay awake as
both sides started down the paper trail" (NEWSDAY, 10/12).
