Row for Snow

By Patrick 

From the Washington Times:

    The memory of former White House spokesman Tony Snow will endure upon the choppy waters of the Potomac River.

    The West Potomac High School Crew Boosters are currently holding weekly raffles to purchase a rowing shell to be christened the “Tony Snow,” named in honor of the former presidential press secretary and longtime Washington journalist, who died in July at age 53.

    And get this: last week’s raffle winner was none other than Jay McConville, a neighbor, close friend and bandmate of Mr. Snow’s.

    All the more appropriate, considering Mr. Snow’s rock ‘n roll band, “Beats Working,” played only one year ago at a West Potomac crew team benefit. Mr. Snow’s daughter, Kendall, rows on the girls’ varsity shell.
