Was Bob Knight Drinking a Beer During Tonight’s Broadcast?
Normally, there’s nothing better than a cold beer during a sporting event. However, it’s probably not advised to be drinking one during a game that you are working at. Duke took on Michigan State tonight as Coach K was pursuing his record breaking 903rd win and he happened to be tied with one of the guys broadcasting. During the broadcast, the camera cut to a shot of the announcers and Bobby Knight was shown to be drinking a brown liquid out of a clear cup.
Now I’m no expert, but I don’t believe they sell soda in cups like that. That basically leaves beer as the only option. If that is true, Bob Knight truly is a legend. I would imagine a hammered Knight could do a better job breaking down a basketball game than 95 percent of the announcers who are sober.
I tip my hat to you Mr. Knight if that was indeed a beer. A totally ballsy move and one that is going to gain you a lot of admiration from college basketball fans everywhere.
