Some Tuesday Linkage

Let’s do some links today. Brian Steinberg of Variety reports that Fox Sports is bundling Fox Sports 1 to potential Super Bowl XLVIII advertisers. That’s one way to get ads on the new network. Brian Lowry of Variety says Tennis Channel is crying foul at Comcast in trying to gain carriage on the cable provider’s […]

Some Quick Thursday Linkage

Trying to provide two consecutive days of linkage, something I haven’t done in quite some time. Here we go.

Some Quick Monday Sports Media Thoughts

Haven’t done a sports media thoughts post in a while. Figured you’re owed one. Let’s do this in bullet form, of course.

Directed […]

Bill Walton is a Verbal Acid Trip Redux; Quotage from the Pac-12 Championship

For the third and unfortunately last time during Championship Week, we provide Bill Walton quotage. He worked the Pac-12 Championship with Dave Pasch and Bill did not disappoint.

Bill Walton Quotage from the Pac-12 Tournament Semifinals

Bill Walton is the gift that keeps on giving.

We provide the quotage from both the UCLA-Arizona and Utah-Oregon games. Some have wondered if the […]

Bill Walton is a Verbal Acid Trip; Quotage from Washington-Oregon

I have to credit tweeter CJZero for that headline. Either Bill Walton was on his “A” game or someone spiked his bottled water tonight because he was really coming out with some gems during the Oregon-Washington game in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament. Having already worked the Utah-Cal game for Pac-12 Network with […]
