Essential information and outrageous anecdotes...a must-read for every true Washington sports fan that showcases the long-standing rivalries, quirky characters and memorable moments of both amateur and pro sports in Washington State: * Mariners Ken Griffey Sr. and Ken Griffey Jr. were the first father-son duo to play together on the same major-league team; they also hit back-to-back homers * Sports Illustrated once called bowling's first Million Dollar Man, Earl Anthony of Tacoma, "the second greatest athlete from the state of Washington," behind only the great John Stockton of Zags and Utah Jazz * In 1930, Orin E. "Babe" Hollingbery led the WSU Cougars football team to the Rose Bowl, their last appearance in that bowl game for 67 years * Seattle Sounders FC midfielder Freddie Ljungberg is perhaps as famous for modeling Calvin Klein underwear as he is for his work on the soccer field * At the 1936 Berlin Olympics, the UW Huskies rowing crew took gold medals in shocking victories over the Germans and Italians, much to the ire of Adolf Hitler * Only in Seattle could an indoor NBA game get rained out--on January 5, 1986, the Sonics were playing the Phoenix Suns at the aging, leaky Seattle Center Coliseum. * And much more.
