Huskies Win Gold at the 1936 Olympics

Reading Is FUNdamental

I read this book with special pride as it detailed the hard work and dedication that led up to the University of Washington's varsity eight winning gold in Berlin and dominating the American rowing scene in the mid-1930s.

This great tome features insights into the Great Depression, Seattle, the State of Washington, the great traditions of Husky Crew and Hitler's Germany. I highly recommend it.

Speaking of our beloved Huskies . . .

The Washington Huskies (6-3) will be in SoCal for a rare Friday night game at the storied Rose Bowl to take on the UCLA Bruins (7-2).

We actually met a bunch of Husky alumni at the home of Mike and Susan D'Antuono in Altadena last night for a very fun evening to celebrate our communal Huskiness.

On Friday, we will be meeting up about 1:30 p.m. with a group of 24 Husky fanatics to tailgate on the grass at the Brookside Golf Course that surrounds the Rose Bowl.
