No hiding from him Ditka calling Pee Wee Herman a
Sothead. Bad comparison? Sorry. I

Vitale doesn't constrain his
comments to just one network or
,one basketball league. He works for
'both ABC and ESPN, covering
games throughout the week. As if
that isn't bad enough, ESPN
broadcasts reruns of the basketball
games, adding to the number of
hours his voice can be heard across
the air waves.
Sunday's broadcast of the
Michigan-Michigan State game was
a fine illustration of why
basketball'ssversion of an
obnoxious John Madden has to go.
Vitale's hyperbolic commentary
is, at best, unbelievable, and, at
worst, distracting. At the beginning
of Sunday's broadcast, Vitale said

was just repeating it in case you
didn't hear one of the four times
Vitale used the Ditka-Herman
comparison Sunday.
What did you say?
Another favorite of Vitale is his
description of Frieder. "He's on my
all-Lee Iacocca team!" says Vitale,
panting wildly. OK, neat, Frieder,
does a good job of selling his
Wolverines.
What else do you have to say
about Frieder, Dick?

Any final comments?
"He's on my all-Lee Iacocca
team!":t~e
Four times.
When he was screaming, "You
better call a timeout!", the decibel
level made me unsure as to whether
he was just excited about making a
point or he was actually trying to
convey his thoughts to Frieder. Of
course, he repeated this statement
the minimum four times each time
he felt a timeout necessary.
There probably was a time
during which Vitale was considered
a fresh face on the, college
basketball scene. He might have
even made it through the national
anthem of his first broadcast
without repeating himself. But I've
heard his stories once too often, and
I never again want to hear "playing
time", "timeout", or "Glen Rice"
referredto as PT, TO, or GR,
respectively.
Vitale suggested after someone
made a three-point basket Sunday
that "you can't beat that three-for-
two ratio." I agree. I'll take three
no-name, non-annoying announcers
over Vitale and his partner any day
of the week.
