Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach charged with 40 counts of child sex abuse, broke his silence Monday night about the scandal that lead to the firing of head coach Joe Paterno and three other university officials.
In a phone interview with Bob Costas on NBC’s ‘Rock Center With Brian Williams,’ Sandusky said, “I have horsed around with kids, I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact,” but declared himself innocent of the abuse charges.

Vitamins are said to be good for you. According to a new study from the University of Minnesota, however, that may not always be the case.
Researchers reviewed the cases of 38,000 women over a 19-year period and found that those who took supplements had about a 2.4 percent increased risk of death over those who didn’t, which could be related to the compounds supplements contain — compounds that can be toxic in higher amounts and have a detrimental effect on those who use them long-term.
The White House has announced that President Obama, a well-known basketball afficionado, will attend a Veteran’s Day college game onboard the USS Carl Vinson — the aircraft carrier that buried Osama bin Laden at sea.
