New AA Feature: The Twenty Or So Things On Dickie V's Mind That Have Nothing To Do With College Basketball Or The Game He's Calling

Friday, November 16, 2007


I'm starting a few feature here at AA during the College Basketball Season. Dickie V says a lot of random stuff every game about the game he's calling. He'll bring up coaches from the 20s, players who never got any playing time, and Coach K just about every broadcast. While those are entertaining I want to give you more. That's why I've come up with....

"The Twenty Or So Things On Dickie V's Mind That Have Nothing To Do With College Basketball Or The Game He's Calling"

I'll be keeping track of those of the all inner workings of Dick Vitale's mind, and even if you don't watch the game you can enjoy some of what Dickie V is thinking about other than College Basketball. Feel free to play along on your own and add any that I may have missed in the comments.

What is really incredible is that I saw maybe five minutes of the game, and I'm pretty sure I heard a good 10 of these.

If you were so inclined, this could be a 200 thing list.

Wait, what? Coach K wasn't one of them? I'm actually in shock.

You should keep a tally and find by the end of the season what the ten most pressing topics on Dickie V's mind were.

Dickie V is straight, right? If so, one can hardly fault him for having Jessicas A&B and Scarlett Jo on his mind. They certainly enter my mind from time to time.

Then we must do this with Billy Packer and his stupid references.

"Then we must do this with Billy Packer and his stupid references."

This cannot be done. There does not exist the technology or physical stamina to accomplish this task

This is a cool idea/list! It's awesome baby!

Add to that his quote on ESPN News before the game when he said "I'm so sexy" and was upset they didn't pick him in some magazine as the most handsome.
