This is just a quick little post for Dick Vitale, who, as most of you have probably already heard, underwent vocal cord surgery yesterday and expects to be out until at least February. Many college basketball fans dislike Dickie V’s style, his outlandish screaming and nicknames, and his ACC (specifically Duke) homerism. But Vitale has done more in his 30 years of broadcasting for the sport of college basketball than almost anyone else. His infectious enthusiasm has helped make the sport we love what it is today. So get well soon, Dickie V. We will all miss you on ESPN’s broadcasts, whether we admit it or not.
