This weekend's Hot Clicks features Bill Walton commentating on baseball and Josh McCown coming out of retirement.
"Who’s playing tonight?"
"I apologize to your family for ruining your career."
Bill Walton was in peak midseason college basketball form when he and Jason Benetti shared the broadcast booth for the Angels-White Sox game on Friday night. Among his highlights: Apologizing to Benetti’s family for ruining his career, calling for a triple play (with one out), comparing Wellington Castillo to Usain Bolt, and telling Benetti he doesn’t need any direction in getting high.
