Bobby Knight the Golf Show Impresario
You gotta see this. Bobby Knight, the former coach of the Indiana Hoosiers basketball team, now coach at Texas Tech, was the host of a Golf Show. Yes, in the early 80s, the face of Indiana basketball Bobby “Mt. Vesuvius” Knight, was the host of a locally produced golf show entitled “Golf Your Way". For a man that is known for throwing chairs and choking players, telling others how to play golf doesn’t seem to play to Bobby Knight’s strengths.
Somewhere in between the long profanity-laced diatribes and the club throwing, Mr. Knight was attempting to instruct his viewers on how to improve their attitude and their golf score. Who better to talk about attitude?
I discovered this gem on an obscure sports blog called We Are The Postmen. There you will find show outtakes of a scratchy, poorly shot, nine minute video of Coach Knight beating balls, throwing clubs, pissing behind a tree, spewing a colorful litany of anatomical terms and castigating “Bernie” behind the camera. One of my favorites is his attempt at being a pitchman for Pizza Hut. “Pizza Hut is to appetite what Jack Nicklaus is to golf.” Huh?
