Gotsch Reaches Peak of Walton Mountain
He has reported that ESPN Sports had picked up an exclusive item he and Ms. Jones had reported regarding Luke Walton begin escorted off the field of the USC game.
There is further mention of the Jones/Gotsch USC blog with the Walton story at the Deadspin website.
Of all the celebrities who showed up at the USC-UCLA game last weekend, it must have been easy to miss Luke Walton, Lakers bit player and son of Big Bill Walton. But not for long. As reported by USC’s From The Sidelines blog, the younger Walton was booted off the sidelines last weekend for not having an appropriate visitor pass. And we really mean booted: He was escorted off the field by policemen (who, apparently, weren’t busy guarding Stephen A. Smith). From The Sidelines has all kinds of pics from the incident; apparently some USC students inadvertently alerted security to his presence.By the way, Fort Wayne Observed readers can find a photo of Mr. Gotsch at the USC website. It is the first known published photograph of Mr. Gotsch without a baseball cap. We will not publish that here; Indiana Parley has chosen to publish the photograph of Mr. Gotsch's collaborator, Ms. Jones.
We feel bad for Mr. Walton, not just because he was kicked out, but because, upon leaving, fans chanted “Go Clippers!” at him. Now that’s just being mean.
