Oh Jeez, Dickie V’s Hall of Fame Bawling.
And I thought Favre was bad! Watch this for a minute and see a grown man blubber like he just lost his SUV to a DEA agent. They cut away, but OMG, the sound. Puh-leeze.
ESPN interviewed a bawling Dickie V for its story on SportsCenter and then showed a list of the other guys that made it–including PATRICK EWING AND HAKEEM OLAJUWON!!!. Lets see……this year’s class includes Patrick Ewing, perhaps the best player in New York Knicks history and a top-five center; Hakeem Olajuwon, a player many consider (including me) to be the best center of the modern era and winner of two NBA titles; and Pat Riley, one of the best coaches in league history…..and the four-letter network decides to run the interview of Vitale sobbing like a little girl with a skinned knee over and over again like its some touching moment.
Oh come on…give Dicky V a break. Its a big deal to be in the Hall of Fame especially for a broadcaster.
@Going Crazy: You can give him a break, but I won’t. I know it’s a big deal, and a damp eye is OK, but he was BAWLING! BTW: he was a coach first, don’t forget.
