This morning brings a rare event to the chambers of the state Senate – a knighting ceremony.

Lt. Gov. Brad Owen – he’s the one with the gavel overseeing Senate proceedings – and his advisor on international relations Antonio Sanchez will receive the high honor from the King of Spain at 11:30 a.m.

TVW will televise the event live..

Spain’s King Juan Carlos I will not be at the ceremony. The bestowing of knighthood will be carried out by Manuel Pradas Romani, the consul general of Spain in San Francisco and Luis Fernando Esteban, the honorary consul of Spain for Washington.

Why are these two gents getting the honor? They’ve done a bunch of cool things for Spain as spelled out in the lieutenant governor’s press release.
