Shut the Fuck Up Already, Dick Vitale

I’m currently watching the UNC-Duke game and figure it’s better to vent my anger by blogging than by throwing beer bottles at the TV.  Sportscasters often piss me off because they tend to be ignorant ex-jocks who can hardly express a coherent thought.  This is not the problem with Dick Vitale, who is fairly knowledgeable about college basketball.  The problem is that his shtick – the ridiculously excited tone, the lame catch phrases – got old about 20 years ago, yet he continues to trot it out every time he opens his mouth.  Perhaps it’s not an act and he talks like that all the time (“this muffin is awesome, baby!”); regardless, it’s got to stop.

Blowhard.

The worst thing about Dick Vitale, however, is the way he fawns over players, especially those who play for Duke or UNC (he practically creams his jeans when these two play each other).  I have never heard him say anything even remotely critical about anyone ever.  He’ll even slob the knob of the towel boy who comes out and mops sweat off the court:  “What a great mopping technique this kid’s got!  He’s the most talented towel boy in the conference, baby!”  What a douche.
