CBS and Paramount Television are exploring the possibility of a half-hour comedy series based on the life of Texas Tech coach Bob Knight.
(CUE theme song, to the title tune from The Beverly Hillbillies, by Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.)
Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Bob.
Coached Indiana 'fore they up and took his job.
Bob said, "Why is everyone afraid of me?"
Then he went on the tube and berated Jer-e-my.
Schaap, that is. Journalist, TV star....
(Fade in. Interior. BOB KNIGHT'S living room in Lubbock. Early evening. The doorbell rings. From the kitchen, off-camera, comes the voice of Bob's wife, ALICE....)
alice: Do I hear a ding-dong?
bob (under his breath): No, but I hear a ding-dong--every time you talk, Alice!
