Ha, I love that picture of Pasch getting annoyed. Here's a story ...
I love Walton. He's a total people-person who is very approachable and loves to interact, always with a big friendly welcoming smile. My sons and I got to meet and talk with him last year at the tournament. Very engaging guy who wants to know your story, and not rushed in the slightest. He's in the moment.
He was completely surrounded by people who wanted to talk and get their picture with him ... far more than any of the other players, ex-players, or pundits in the lobby. Larry Scott was off to the side by himself and kept saying, "Bill, come on, we have to go." Bill kept saying, "Okay, hold on a minute and I'll be there." But Bill keeps talking and taking pictures ... "just one more Larry." My sons and I finally go over and talk to Larry because he's all alone, is annoyed, and keeps looking at his watch. Not all that engaging.
By the way, got to walk and talk with Luke, Rondae, Aaron, and others -- no one should miss the tournament.
