After two years off the air, Bill Walton has returned triumphantly to network television as a college basketball analyst for Pac-12 Networks and ESPN. To highlight the occasion, he’s embarking on a nine-school road trip in a giant bus with his face on it. The former Bruin plans to engage with students at each campus to discuss life, basketball and his college experience.
The tour starts this Friday, and yours truly has the privilege of riding along for the first two stops: Oregon and Oregon State. I’ll cover this glorious journey right here through blog posts, video and photos, and on Twitter at @SarahKezele. You can join the Twitter conversation with the hashtag #WaltonOnWheels.
The NBA Hall of Famer recently took a second to share his excitement for the tour. It wouldn’t be a Bill Walton-sanctioned event without at least one Grateful Dead reference:
To be clear, he will not be driving the bus, and we’re still going to Pac-12 schools, not never ever land.
See y’all Friday!
