That night, the self-assured Amaro, who brashly labeled himself "The Total Package" but whose teammates called him "Epstein" because he shared a half-Jewish, half-Hispanic background with that Welcome Back, Kotter character - compounded his problems by enthusiastically, even swaggeringly, doing interview after interview.

Oh no. Was there a Horshach?
