A Bunch of Great Guys

I had a great time last night covering the Great Guy Dinner, an annual fundraiser put on by Philadelphia's chapter of Coaches vs. Cancer, which raised nearly $90,000 for cancer research. I got to meet several of the local college basketball coaches, including Phil Martelli of St. Joe's (who ribbed me about getting something wrong in a previous story I wrote), and Fran Dunphy of Penn. Also got to chat with Anthony Gargano of WIP for a bit. But perhaps the highlight of the event was the comedy routine by radio personality Joe Conklin, who did a 20-minute set where he did impressions of seemingly every major Philly sports figure of the past 20 years. If Harry Kalas ever retires, I'm sure Conklin could sit in as him and no one would notice the difference.
