I’d say that most of Kentucky fans don’t feel a lot of love for Dicky V nowadays, since we won’t forget when he took a giant crap on Kentucky when Tubby left. That’s fine. He’s recently jumped back on the Big Blue Bandwagon now that we have a nice partnership with Bristol, Connecticut. (Update: Read today’s thoughts from Dick about the Calipari bashing. Thanks, dhwildcats10!) That might not be enough for some Wildcat fans to finally give Dick some love.
Regardless about how we feel about him, I think we all respect his longevity in the sports broadcasting field. We can also respect that the man fought through throat surgery to remove cancerous lesions last season. This season he may show that his age might be keeping him from being especially effective in the breakneck pace of college basketball coverage and promotion; but then again, that’s a great problem to have, considering he’s doing the thing he loves the most.
Happy Birthday, Dick!
