Walton Has Done Well in his Second Career

Talk about comeback stories! What about Bill Walton?

No, not as a player, but as an announcer. This is a person who, as a young man, had a tremendous stutter and had great difficulty conversing in public.

With hard work and perserverance, he has overcome these problems to become, in a very short period of time, an outstanding "color man" in the NCAA tourney. It's wonderful to see ex-athletes excel at life after sports, especially when they overcome handicaps to do it. Bill Walton's a class act through and through.
