Bill Walker is everywhere.

Bill Walker is not resting this offseason. Not even close.

He's running for governor of Alaska:

Former state Rep. Ralph Samuels and Bill Walker, the ex-mayor of Valdez, appeared at the forum, which was sponsored by the Fairbanks Republican Women. Gov. Sean Parnell, who had another commitment and didn’t attend the debate, addressed the questions in a taped video response.

He's coaching Division 1A baseball in Washington.

Naches Valley's coach Bill Walker says his baseball team -- now moving into its fourth straight Class 1A final four -- keeps "getting it done with smoke and mirrors."

Translated: good pitching and timely hitting.

He's presiding over shrimp season in Mississippi.

The opening of the brown shrimp season in Mississippi waters should occur within the first two weeks of June, said William Walker, executive director of the state Department of Marine Resources.

Walker was given authority to open the season when test trawls yield 68 shrimp per pound by the five-member state Commission on Marine Resources on Tuesday.

On Thursday, Walker said he has added an additional test for the opening of shrimp season.

Shrimp will be tested for petroleum hydrocarbons, he said.

Bill's clearly keeping himself busy off the court, but this hardly measures up to past years, when he's become president of Nicaragua, played Australian rules football, and dove underwater to save an English cathedral from collapsing.

Pick up this man's option, please.
