Dave Pasch Tweets A Text His Broadcasting Partner Bill Walton Randomly Sent Him And It’s Crazy


On the surface, Bill Walton and his Pac-12 broadcasting partner of six years Dave Pasch go together like orange juice and toothpaste. Like Lena Dunham and a bachelor party. Like myself and good, forward-thinking decisions. And Pasch knew this before the two were paired together–he at first resisted the pairing and claimed he felt and still feels supremely awkward at times during broadcasts when Walton goes off an an unhinged tangent about art, music, volcanoes, what have you.

But the 65-year-old Dead Head doesn’t go on his rants for theater, as evidenced by a text Pasch recently received from Walton, which Pasch tweeted below:

Same, Bill. Same.

Lets take a take a short trip down Walton Way.

Walton gets deep with Doris Burke.

Tomato, Tomahto. Steve Jobs, Kevin Durant.

Bill on faith.

This is Bill Walton’s world. We’re just living in it.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
