anyone read that article in The Athletic? I was not certain Seth Davis could write any more bu tit is a very good article. Takes you back to a time when Dickie V doing a game just meant it was big time. Highlights of the article: suggests that far from being a phony, the act is straight up Dick Vitale and that is how he is 24/7...talks a lot about how hard loss hits him and gives quite a bit of details on his tireless work for pediatric cancer. It was really difficult to watch him for about a decade as it seemed that he had become a caricature and I think it is natural to tire of anyone's act after a while...I think he has stepped up his game a bit lately and regardless the dude is a good guy by all accounts even if he is a bit annoying. He seems a LOT like Bono to me.
