Good news for NCAA basketball fans. Dick Vitale is back! After undergoing throat surgery, Vitale says he had serious doubts about the future of his career. But apparently all is well and Vitale will be behind the mike for Duke vs. North Carolina.
It’s strange how these announcers grow on us. Dick Vitales voice is an essential part of many of the greatest moments in college basketball. Across the country sports fans have their favorite announcers and refuse to listen to anyone else. Myself, when the New Orleans Saints are playing, turn down the volume on the TV and listen to ex-Saints Quarterback Archie Manning, Jim Henderson, and ex-Saints fullback Hokie Gajan. It just wouldn’t be the same without these guys.Eric Drouant
