The great mystery for basketball fans in the West is why the commentating buffoon, Bill Walton, is allowed to broadcast PAC 12 games. He is the most irritating interruption of a sporting event ever. Moreover the camera plays to his boorish antics causing fans to miss critical plays.

Every week fans cringe at the thought that Mr. Walton might be inflicted upon the broadcast of their favorite team’s game. Do the suits at ESPN and the Pac 12 networks really think that his “cute” egotistical ramblings add value to a sporting event — really?

Then again, if the average age of viewers is twelve maybe it does makes sense.
