ESPN’s Bill Walton is known for his many diverse interests, from the Grateful Dead to Temecula to volcanoes to quasars, so perhaps it’s not all that surprising that he’s now getting into Pokemon Go. Interest in the smartphone app is sweeping the world and even forcing places like Arlington National Cemetery and the National Holocaust Museum to ask visitors not to play it, so we should have expected it would make its way into the broadcast realm, and Walton’s certainly a logical candidate to get in on the fever. Here’s what he posted to Twitter about it this weekend:

Walton’s also been hanging out with some non-Pokemon creatures, though:

Just wait until Walton starts making Pokemon references during broadcasts. That may be a whole new level of verbal acid trip.
