Wally Watch: August 22, 2007

Wally Watch

Wally Watch: Where we read Wally Hall so you don't have to.

August 22, 2007: "It doesn't take long to feel at home in Colorado"

Primary Theme: Wally got a free trip to Colorado in order to...well, we aren't really sure why.

Choice Analogy: "Saying [Alfred Williams] is popular in the Denver area would be like saying there’s a little skiing done in the state."

Heartwarming Factor: 2/10. Unless you're moved by the thought of Wally taking a nice working vacation, that is.

Names Dropped: Tons! Charles Baker, Donald McDonald, Steve McClain, Derrick Clark, Jeff Bzdelik, Charles Johnson, Alfred Williams. Plus references to Scott Hastings and Ken Hatfield.

God Watch: Not counting a slightly confusing reference to a Muslim barber shop, nothing of note.

Our Analysis: Definitely one of Wally's more random efforts. After reading it several times, we're still not entirely clear why he went to went to Colorado in the first place. Is checking in on the former head bball coach of Shorter College that newsworthy? It contains a nice nugget about Williams considering going to Arkansas (because of Ken Hatfield's offense, of all things), but other than that its analysis of the Denver sports scene makes it an odd fit for the Democrat-Gazette. Maybe local Colorado fans would find it interesting?
