If you're an Arizona basketball fan, you already know that the 'Cats ended up beating the Stanford Cardinal 73-66 last night at the McKale Center—and if you were watching the game on television, you likely noted the commentary of ESPN color analyst and basketball great Bill Walton.

  • "Throw it dowwwwwn, snow man!"

I tell ya, I'm not sure which one is Bill Walton, and which one is the Snow Miser.
