| NEWS HOF Bill Walton Dies at 71

One of those guys that as I got older, he kinda grew on me a bit. He was weird as hell, but sports needs those types of characters in it. In terms of his broadcasting style, I wouldn't have wanted him calling a Bama game of any importance, but those Thanksgiving tournament games that came on at 10 pm with little meaning were a good niche for him. I'm not really old enough to remember his playing days, but I know he was good. Would love to have been close by and seen/heard him and Mike Leach sit together on a cross country flight.
