If there’s one thing about Bill Walton, he’s wiling to talk about everything but the game. There will be some analysis thrown in, however, it will come in-between thoughts about volcanoes and just about anything that comes into his head.

This season, one of the common themes during ESPN Pac-12 games with Dave Pasch and Bill Walton has been Temecula references. They began during their first game together earlier this month and have continued throughout the season.

During Thursday’s Oregon-Arizona on ESPN2, Pasch brought Walton some dirt from Temecula which became quite the adventure. It really became an adventure. Watch:

This may be a television first, seeing an analyst rub dirt on himself. Maybe next, Walton can smoke a peace pipe with Pasch. You know it’s bound to happen sometime before the Pac-12 Tournament.
