Disabled List, BABY

Looks like yelling uncontrollably DOES have its side effects. From Dicky V's personal letter:

After an examination, it was determined that I had lesions on my left vocal cord and that they should be surgically removed. Dr. Zeitels said his goal is to have me back sitting at courtside in early February.

There is nothing professionally that I love better than sharing insights about the players and coaches that make college basketball so unique. I can't wait to get back with all my colleagues at ESPN. Visiting college campuses and interacting with the fans has kept me so young and energized. I can't wait to get back out there, having a blast with all of you, who are so vital to our game.

I really like Dick Vitale, so, it's sad to see him on the DL. I know many folks get annoyed with his quips and tone, but you can't deny him to be an important part of the college basketball community. Here's to a quick and safe, recovery, Dicky V.
