Hola Bitcholas,

As we continue to prepare for Redfestival (I'm sure you have your tickets, right? RIGHT?) we're reminded that this ridiculous, outdoor drinking shindig is for the Fisher House. Yes, it's for you and us, as it is a celebration of our common silliness, but it's for the Fisher House.

This reminded me of a particular moment with a Marine.

I was leaving a Sounders  game wearing my jersey (kit). A group of Marines in their 'formal' wear walked by and I told them they should be able to wear jerseys. One thing led to another and I ended up giving the guy my shirt...and subsequently walking shirtless through downtown. Not a great look, but the Marine was very gracious.

Relay this story a few days later on the air and a different Marine, who had nothing to do with the Sounders thing, comes to the studio and gives me a MEDAL that HE had earned. I didn't wanna take it, but he insisted.

He gave it to me because I gave away my jersey.  Love it when one good deed leads to another.

That's kinda the whole point with Redfestival.  

Just thought I'd pass that along.

Until tomorrow, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!

 

And catch all FOUR hours of the show daily 2-6p PST on the RADIO.COM app, just look for KISW!
