Steve Kelley chimes in from Madison Square Garden

We welcome our first guest to the Bob Condotta blog, Seattle Times columnist Steve Kelley:
Thanks Bob, and what a pleasure it is to be sitting here at Madison Square Garden moments before tipoff.
Here are a couple of pregame items before the opening tip of Washington’s first trip of the season away from Hec Ed, against 15th-ranked Texas A&M:
Only two Huskies have ever played a game at this self-proclaimed, “World’s Most Famous Arena.” Junior Jon Brockman played in the 2005 Jordan Classic and, last spring, freshman center Matthew Bryan-Amaning played in the All-American Jordan Classic regional game, which is the first game of the Jordan Classic doubleheader.
The players got a taste of the Garden on Tuesday night when they went to the New York Knicks’ loss to the Golden State Warriors. Former Husky and present Knick Nate Robinson, whose team plays at Detroit tonight, said he will be at the Garden for Washington’s game Friday. Also in attendance at Tuesday’s game were Washington coach Lorenzo Romar and assistant coach Paul Fortier.
Thursday morning, the Huskies will have a perfect view of the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade, during an NIT brunch on the ninth floor of the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. They will eat Thanksgiving dinner at the hotel following practice.
