    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    I gotta say that at first I didn't want him here at all, I found him annoying at times during games, but I wouldn't mind having him back in the future.

    I will be in the lower deck for that one. He will hear me boo the refs. Hard to boo the refs when you are in nosebled heaven.

    The whole broadcast and outcome was great... except for when they showed the Ohio State game from last March toward the end of the game. Yuck.

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    I was impressed Dukie V didn't talk about Duke. I feel like every game I watch where Dick Vitale is involved, he talks about Duke, even when Duke is not playing!

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    I have never been a Vitale fan. I will say that one of the big things I hate is the way he thinks he has to yell throughout a telecast. For this game you guys that were in JHHC did a fantastic job of making sure that his yelling didn't bother me; that was the only way he was going to be heard. He's still not my favorite, but I can't say that he bothered me nearly as much as he has for other games he has worked.

    I'm glad to hear he is such a gracious guest. That is good to hear.

    I'm really curious why it took him 35 years to come and do a game at Hilton. What is the story behind that...?

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    He has toned it down and was good, especially considering he no longer has a voice. I thought his PBP guy did a great job, both in terms of calling the game and bringing the best out of Dickie V.

    That was my feeling too. I ended up listening to the game on the radio but rewatched part of the 1st half on ESPN3. He didn't seem to use his annoying phrases like "Diaper Dandy" as much and was generally less annoying than usual. At least, in the part I watched.

    On TV - other than bringing up Kane transferring as bad for basketball like 4 times he was fine. No mention of kids like Wiggins that won't even be taking classes in 4 weeks and then leaving for the NBA.
