It was Feb. 14, 1997, 20 years ago today. I had to broadcast one of my favorite games, a rivalry between Fairland & Chesapeake. But this was no ordinary broadcast of what we called "The Best of Area High School Basketball" on what is now called News Radio 800 WVHU (back then it was AM 800 WKEE).
My voice had been fading all day long, not due to sickness, but due to nerves! It was the first Valentine's Day for me with my girl friend Leigh Anne. She had gone to game broadcasts with me before, but this time she would become part of the show!
The game was fine. As the play-by-play announcer though I didn't really care about the game itself. Not this time! I was more concerned with the postgame report because I had a very important question for the love of my life!
Listen to see if she said YES!
