I liked #18. Learning how to speak is my greatest accomplishment and your worst
nightmare. Of Bill Walton's quotes.He is so correct.Press mute please.
Bill Walton was the best part of the game. I fell asleep before game time and
woke up only for about the last 10 minutes. My regret wasn't that I missed
most of the game, my regret was that I missed most of Bill Walton.
I really enjoy Bill. He loves the scenery in the state of Utah and does a
better job promoting it than the state tourism commission. He’s better
than listening to the endless basketball statistics we hear on KSL radio.
For those who don't like Walton: next time just turn down the TV sound and
listen to Greg Wrubell insert a commercial with every dribble, pass, shot and
turnover. "That was the Depends lack of dribble of the game".
I love Bill Walton - only he can make a college basketball game interesting.
Hated much of the Walton "color" commentary. Added little to the game
and was all about Walton self-promotion. When we learn more about the
commentator than about the players, guess who the commentator thinks is more
important? I tuned in to watch basketball not listen to stupid
comments.We already have one Dick Vitale and one Dick Vitale is one
Walton is a rather boring, bordering on irrational, loose cannon occupying space
on your tv which would be better used by viewing static.
Bill Walton is a lovable, loose cannon!And, I agree with him:.
"The Immortal Irishman" is an awesome book. All of Timothy Egan's
non-fiction books are awesome. His fiction may be also.😁
@69: No...having to drive home after the game knowing your team got whipped is
painful. Getting to listen to Walton throw accolades on BYU is priceless!
That's fantastic. So funny.
Having to listen to Walton is painful, especially when you spend season after
season with his never ending attempt to sound like an intellectual. He is
probably one of the most insecure people in sports broadcasting. The PAC 12
would be doing a big favor to basketball fans by letting him go. Oh and do we
need to have him talking about coal burning plants in Utah while we are focused
on the game?
By my calculation only 4 of Utah's 18 upcoming games will be broadcast with
Bill Walton. That leaves 14 where I will not have to mute the TV.
I understand lots of people like him....But the guy never stops
talking!Really distracting during the games.
Bill Walton is classic but enough of the PAC 12 "conference of
champions". Nobody cares about softball, gymnastics, swimming, golf,
skiing, and rowing.
My favorite exchange:Bill - This is the best I have seen McKay Cannon
play!Roxy - When have you ever seen him play before.Bill - Well...in
the first half.
Funny, #9 is exactly what I was saying at the half time break.
I've always been a huge fan of Bill Walton ever since his UCLA playing
days. His comments were very complimentary to the state of Utah and BYU. He
has a very wry sense of humor. He is one of those guys that sees something
ironic or humorous were others don't get it.I saw Bill Walton play in
the NCAA Far-West Regional basketball tournament in the very first year of the
Marriott Center (I think it was his Senior year at UCLA along with Henry Bibby).
I was a junior in high school and was on my high school varsity basketball team
in a small high school from Southern Utah. My high school coach took us to the
NCAA tournament that year and I got to see Bill Walton play. BYU didn't
make it because the Kresimir Cosic led cougars were beaten in the sub-regionals
(at Idaho State I think) by Long Beach State in a very controversial game. The
Bruins played Weber State the first night and killed them. But it was fun to
watch because a player on Weber State was from my high school. The Bruins went
on to win the NCAA that year. I'm sure that Bill has fond members of the
Marriott Center and he briefly referred to playing there during the BYU-Utah
I wish I could have turned off the TV sound. ESPN commentary was a waste and a
The irony of that situation is that BYU is an uber-conservative campus and
Walton is an uber-liberal guy.
Yes, Walton was amazing that night!
