Vania King is always volunteering to do things for people. She eagerly gives autographs, sings the national anthem at the US Open and Dodgers games and hangs draw picks with an enthusiasm not witnessed by many. So it was that I watched her play the straight with Mark Knowles as the foil at CitiOpen’s Pro-Am two weeks ago. MC Wayne Bryan got Mark Knowles and Vania King to engage in a DC Idol contest.
Knowlzee is Bahamian. Even if you add two points to his score for the non-citizen handicap, that leaves him with a 3.
He can play some mean drums, though.
Count me as a new fan of Vania King’s youtube channel. She’s apparently taking requests now, and I thought she nailed “Beauty and the Beast” to the point that Walt Disney and Angela Lansbury would be proud. For the next remake of the classic, Vania should be a shoo-in for Belle and Knowles might end up making a fine Beast.
