Tonight’s National Championship has spawned a host of ways to enjoy the game. While some will gather with friends, share some drinks and jokes and take in the season finale, others will watch ESPN employees do it on television.
Currently, ESPNU is airing its “Voices” edition of the National Championship which includes Keyshawn Johnson, Michelle Beadle, Rachel Nichols, Marcellus Wiley, Jay Bilas and Bill Walton. It has already produced some note-worthy moments.
It appears that “Voices” will be all the fun of sitting in a room of famous people without any of the forced participation in the conversation on your part.
In an unscripted format, Bill Walton took the opportunity to invite Michelle Beadle to his room later.
Beadle responded with a self-deprecating joke about her sex life.
It looks like they’re in the ultimate “man cave” type room with several TV’s going at the same time, recliners and chill vibes. Walton showed up to the party wearing Uncle Sam gear and everybody was like, “yo what’s up with Jay’s buddy, Bill?”
Clemson trails by two touchdowns midway through the second quarter. If this game starts to get away from the Tigers, their conversation in the “Voices” room might stray even further from the game.
