Bill Walton and Dave Pasch worked Saturday's UCLA - Arizona game. Since ABC has XFL rights and this is XFL opening weekend, the pair needed to shoehorn an XFL promo into the broadcast. Rather than do a classic read, Pasch just asked Walton to read the names and make some noises. It was everything you would expect.

I count Walton getting through five of the eight team names before throwing on in later. He also included a random Trojans reference which in itself is a reference to himself on Thursday. Still, the highlight of the clip had to be Walton earnestly asking "what sport is that." Apparently XFL fever has not reached the Walton household.
