Open the flood gates on Covert media coverage:
ORLANDO - (AP) --- REF READING: Bob Delaney isn't officiating in the NBA finals for the first time in nine years, sidelined by a late-season injury. The veteran referee got some news to cheer him up during his recovery. Delaney's book, ``Covert: My Years Infiltrating the Mob'' was recently released in paperback, and the motion picture rights to the book were optioned by Appledown Films and Scott-Burns Productions. Delaney has been an NBA referee for 22 years. His book tells the story of his years as a New Jersey state trooper working undercover to infiltrate organized crime.
