Any Pac-12 basketball fan will agree with that first sentence. Though Bill Walton has some serious chops as a basketball player (and I share his love for the Grateful Dead), his rambling tangents during the games he’s announcing for ESPN are enough to drive anyone mad. To the point that I prefer to listen to my University of Arizona Wildcats radio announcers while watching the game with the TV muted.
So color me intrigued when I ran across this review of James Kirkland’s new book, “The Bill Walton Mysteries, Friend of the Devil” in the Willamette Week. The book got a pretty darn good review so I’ve added it to my reading list. Sounds like a great book for a day at the beach!
