We have to try to decipher his ramblings for two hours?

I'd rather stab my eyeballs with an icepick.

Well, let's give the big guy credit when it is due--

He says he loves dogs. And he gave a well-deserved shout out to Coach Hudy for her contributions to the KU program, something very few other broadcasters have acknowledged.

Does Walton ever come up for air?

He's doing most the talking and that's not his role. He's supposed to be the color commentator, not the play by play guy.

Who cares that he has never been to the Ukraine. Why must he give us a geography lesson?

More geography from Professor Bill--

Geodetic center of US is in Ottawa, Ks. Geographic center outside Lebanon.

He sprinkled in some science too. Helium was "invented" in Kansas. Who knew?

Actually the geodetic center of the USA is near Osborne, Kansas...not Ottawa. Just for clarification. Lol

bill's a reflection of something but i'm not sure just what. perhaps it's california. everything is wonderful. svi is the greatest. the biggest upset in history. the conference of champions. happy birthday. the center of the earth. whatever. he's comical by exception, i guess. i listen to him and just shake my head in amazement of what goes on in his. an absolutely free spirit child of the '60's. but could he ever ball.

Whenever I see Vitale or Walton in the broadcast booth, I just mute it, they are too annoying. I don't need them to tell me how the game is going.

i can't watch games with dick behind the microphone. i just turn to something else. he has become incessantly annoying. years ago, he was good. but times have passed him.

bill, on the other hand, is somewhat entertaining. his comments propping-up svi as an nba lock were hilarious given how the game played out.

Another Bill Walton gem tonight--"I believe in the seperation of church and state. I also believe the earth revolves around the sun."

I just can't write these pearls of wisdom down fast enough.
