Firefighters, Superstars Compete for Charity

The courts at Owego Free Academy were smokin' Thursday night--but not from any fire. However, there were firefighters there, along with some professionals of a different sort.

It was the Harlem Superstars Comedy Basketball Team, competing-- if you want to use that word--against the Candor and Owego Fire Departments.

Even though they were psyched, the firefighters didn't seem to mind how low their expectations were.

"They're exited. Everybody has been talking about this for weeks and now finally it's here. I can maybe get a good night's sleep after tomorrow. I predict the score will be 100 points for the Harlem Superstars, 10 for the Candor-Owego Fire Department," said Francis Foster, Volunteer Candor Fireman.

The basketball game was for the benefit of the Owego-Apalachin Dollars for Scholars and the Candor food pantry.
