Famed broadcaster Bill Walton changes into ‘Keep Austin Weird’ T-shirt on air while announcing Texas game

It’s no secret that retired basketball player, famed broadcaster and unashamed Deadhead Bill Walton really, really loves tie-dye. So on Saturday at the Frank Erwin Center, it seemed only fitting that Texas head football coach Tom Herman presented Walton with a tie-dyed “Keep Austin Weird” T-shirt at the Longhorns’ game against Kansas.

Walton, who was, of course, already wearing a tie-dye shirt, decided to take the gift a step further and changed into the new shirt on live television.

Some Twitter users watching the game were a little salty that Walton seemed more focused on his new T-shirt than on the game itself, but one thing’s undeniable — the guy’s a national treasure.
