    Two great Ken Beatrice memories:
    1) I was sitting around the house listening to him on a boom box one night because a storm had knocked the power. Decided to call and try and stump the band with a professional bowling question. Not only did he take the call, but he stated up front that he did not know much about the subject. He took the question, asked a few questions of his own and then gave a well thought out opinion.

    2) We called his office from work once to settle a basketball argument. Much to my surprise, especially since my boss at the time was a very religious man, Ken curses like a sailor when not on the air. We got a very astute and colorfully worded opinion from Ken on our argument.

    Good Times. Rest In Peace, Ken.

    What sports nut of the right age, in the DC area, hasn’t impersonated his “You’re next!” I got through to him twice. Once to discuss Loyal Marymount and Hank Gathers’ NBA potential(before they became national phenoms and Gather’s passed away). The other, to assert that there was no way Muggsy Bogues would get past the Lakers as Magic’s backup(neither of us suspected the Bullets would draft him) and fall to the 2nd round. Going against his knowledge and opinion was risky, for he was ‘the man’ of Washington sports radio.
