In what now seems like another life, I covered college hoops for a paper in Connecticut and ran across Dickie V all the time. Unlike a lot of television guys, Dick is the same guy off the air as he is on. He loves what he is doing.

I think I was 23 when he stopped me before a game to ask a question about a UConn player. I gave him some info and when he mentioned my name on the air. I still remember my dad calling the next morning to tell me.

Dick is also a huge baseball fan who loves the Yankees and attends games often in Tampa.

Get well soon, Dickie V. The game needs you back.
