Yeah i know it was Wooden's team and he started it all, but I like the Big Redhead more. Especially now with his AMAZING commentary! THROW IT DOWN BIG MAN! THROW IT DOWN! Laughing

Seriously? God, I can't stand Walton calling games. I'm a Tolbert fan, myself.

Ok, a joke along these lines, if you don't mind:

What were the redneck's last words?
"Hey y'all, watch this!"

I like Tolbert too, but Walton is superior.

I can't stand to listen to Walton. I refuse to watch him anymore, but I recall his style as: "That was a TERRIBLE pass! What was he THINKING when he made that pass?!?!"

Give it a rest, Bill. We can't all be perfect.

I especially like the over reactions..."What was Tony Parker thinking with that pass? That could be the worst pass in Spurs history!" or "Keon Clark for MVP!". That after a 10 point, 10 rebound effort off the bench...WALTON IS GREAT!

I will admit that, back when we had league pass, I'd sometimes tune into Clippers games just to hear Walton say things like, "Olowokandi is DOMINATING the paint! He's an UNSTOPPABLE FORCE!"

Bothered me at first, now he's my favorite talking head. He cracks me up. So does that booster seat he's always sitting on.

Re Walton: A few years ago, the NY Times Magazine profiled him. It was a fairly benign piece, but it was clear that the blowhard you guys know and love on TV is just like that in the rest of his life. His sons seemed to enjoy laughing at him behind his back. Can't imagine surviving dad without doing that!

I'll go with that.

The St. George Rugby League team's 11 straight premiership wins from 1956 to 1966. Hard to imagine any team in any code of any sport ever doing something like that again.
