Thursday night Hoosiers everywhere mourned Bob Knight’s finale as a broadcaster for ESPN. The Big Blue Nation had to suffer through a terrible lost, only to accumulate further with Bruce Pearl denouncing the Cats every chance he could. Coach Knight was actually quite respectful of the Cats, even giving Frank Ramsey a shout-out during the game. While most of #BBN is glad he is gone, I am highly distraught. Adding senility to a crazy white-haired Hoosier is great for television. The only thing I can imagine better than Knight calling basketball games, is giving him his own golf show. I may have spoke to soon; Knight actually had a golf show in the late-80s. Now I don’t know if the show was worth watching, but these outtakes are GOLD. Watching him slam his wedge into sand repeatedly gives me pure joy.
[WARNING: Bob Knight literally invented cursing, he’s like a hundred years old. F-Bombs fly almost immediately, so keep the young’uns FAR AWAY when watching this video.]
