Classic video: Leave it to … Watson

You know you’re tired when you fall asleep during a riveting TV show, and that’s precisely what happened to Utah Jazz guard Earl Watson the day after his team’s brutal back-to-back-to-back road trip in Memphis, New Orleans and Oklahoma City.

The 32-year-old Watson was so tuckered from playing in three different cities on three consecutive nights he dozed off during, yep, a “Leave It To Beaver” rerun Wednesday afternoon.

Sorry, Beav.

Have to admit, I watched a whole lot more “Leave It To Beaver” than I did “My Three Sons” growing up. It was a classic — right up there with my childhood favorites “I Dream of Jeannie,” “M*A*S*H” and “The Brady Bunch.”

Also have to admit, I spent about the last half-hour scouring YouTube for good clips of Wally and The Beav. In doing so, I found this awesome video in which we discover who does James Harden’s hair.
