Huskies Participate In KJR Kares A-Thon
On Friday, Sports Radio 950 KJR AM -- the flagship station for the Washington ISP Sports Network -- held its KJR Kares A-Thon at Anthony's on Pier 66.
Several Huskies -- including hoops star Isaiah Thomas, men's crew coach Michael Callahan, men's tennis coach Matt Anger and cross country and track coach Greg Metcalf -- all made the trek to downtown Seattle for an appearance. The annual event, hosted by KJR personality Mike Gastineau, is held to raise money for several Seattle-area charitites.
Under an unusual interview format, all four Husky representatives took the stage at the same time for the interview. The segment started with all three coaches making their argument for which of their sports Thomas would be best suited to play if Lorenzo Romar let him tryout.
It was discovered that Isaiah played tennis while in prep school, so I think Matt Anger won out on the argument.
Each coach gave an update of their sports and what's going on this fall and Thomas talked about his team. There was a nice amount of purple being donned by the crowd in attendance, so the Huskies were well-represented off stage as well.
Also in attendance were former Husky basketball great Mike Hayward, UW quarterback legend Hugh Millen and football and hoops play-by-play announcer Bob Rondeau. It was a great time had by all and a good opportunity for the Husky family to help out their flagship station in the community.
