COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

WIS News 10's Rick Henry was the guest of honor at the Columbia Blowfish game Friday night.  It capped off a week celebrating Henry's 25 years at WIS.

"That's a long time," said Nick Angelo. "I'm only 31 years old so he's been there for almost as long as I've been alive."

"I think anyone that can be with a company for 25 years is awesome," said one fan.

Fans attending Rick Henry Night had a lot to say about the time he's spent at WIS. Some of them have there favorite moments as well.

"The double dog dare, that was always good," said Frances Derrick.

And he did just that Friday night. Rick's grandson, Dean, double dog dared his pop to race the Blowfish Mascot base to base.

And then there were peaches. 400, to be exact, given from McLeod peaches from McBee, Rick's hometown.

Now Rick has two new keys: One to the City of Columbia given by Mayor Steve Benjamin and another to Capitol City Stadium.

It was a night all about Rick, his dedication to sports, and the three letters he represents or now after years represent him.

"I can't hardly remember not watching him on WIS."
