Imagine my excitement to hear that ESPN’s legendary NCAA basketball analyst and maniacal shouting bald man Dick Vitale was dishing out stripper stories about Tony Bennett. Of course, it makes more sense that the guy talking about college hoops for a living would be referring to Virginia Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett, who was named the ACC Coach of the Year after leading his team to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and not the iconic singer, who probably has upwards of 12 billion stripper stories of his own to tell.
Instead, last night, Vitale quickly told the story of how Virginia’s Tony Bennett has not only met the singer of the same name, but also one other person who shares the moniker. Except this one is a little more interesting and, honestly, I’d like to know more about how they met and where she works, Dickie V. LEAD ME TO THE BOOBIES, BAY-BEE! Seriously, I bet Vitale cleans up at Mons Venus in the offseason.

Oh DickieV. During ESPN’s “Bracketology” show on Sunday night, Dick Vitale told a little story about Virginia Cavaliers’ head coach Tony Bennett and a stripper named Toni Bennett. Why? Because he’s DickieV and no matter how much you can’t stand him during a Duke-North Carolina match-up he can do whatever he wants.

Dick Vitale's annual rant about the NCAA Tournament seeding and selection process has become a staple of ESPN's Selection Sunday coverage. With only SMU being a semi-controversial choice left on the bubble, there really wasn't too much to rant about unless you wanted to get into the weird seeding and the group of death handed to Wichita State.
So Sunday night Dickie...
Dick Vitale has unveiled his 2014 March Madness picks. Dickie V likes Michigan State to win the NCAA Tournament.
Dick Vitale is really a kid at heart. At age 74, he has shown no signs of slowing down, this despite being eligible for senior discounts several times over.
During the NCAA Tournament, he’ll make various on-air appearances on ESPN as well as call one Final Four game and the National Championship Game for ESPN International.
As for when he’ll retire, Vitale told USA Today that...
ESPN columnist and television personality Pablo Torre isn’t going to be making any friends in Charlottesville, Virginia any time soon. Today, on Around The Horn, Torre predicted that 16-seed Coastal Carolina will be the first team to ever knock off a 1-seed in its first game in the NCAA Tournament. That would make the Chanticleers’ victim the Virginia Cavaliers.
To be fair, Torre...
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- As confetti rained down on victorious Virginia, the Charlottesville contingent in attendance -- which was surprisingly sizable -- didn't seem to want to leave.
They swayed back and forth with the music, waved their signs and pompoms and generally had a look of dazed happiness on their faces as they just soaked in the moment.
The crowd had done its job, by...
The Cavaliers were projected to have a great year. It was year four in Tony Bennett’s rebuilding project and he had two of the best seniors in the ACC in Joe Harris and Akil Mitchell. Yet, they struggled to find a quality non-conference win, losing to VCU, Wisconsin and Green Bay. Then right before entering league play, the Cavaliers were spanked by Tennessee by 35 points. They...
When Dick Vitale starts telling stories about Virginia Coach Tony Bennett and strippers on air, you know March Madness has arrived. Never change, Dickie V.
Virginia defeated Duke by a final score of 72-63 to win the 2014 ACC Tournament.
Joe Harris was named MVP and was joined on the All-Tournament Team by Malcolm Brogdon, Jabari Parker, T.J. Warren and Talib Zanna.
Just returned from the ACC Tournament, so this will be a short post. Congratulations to the Virginia Cavaliers on a great tournament. They were the ACC’s best team all year, and they were the ACC’s best team this weekend. They were a deserving champion. Cavalier fans really showed up today, and it kept Duke from having an overwhelming homecourt advantage even though the game...
ESPN’s Dick Vitale was analyzing Virginia’s #1 seed when he somehow transitioned from Tony Bennett, the Cavs’ head coach, to Tony Bennett, the legendary recording artist, to Toni Bennett, a stripper. Pretty easy to see why Rece Davis had no clue what to say after that.
The post Dick Vitale Makes Stripper Joke on Live TV appeared first on Diehardsport.

GREENSBORO, N.C.- Virginia forward Anthony Gill discusses the team's win over Duke for the ACC tournament championship, and the momentum ahead of the NCAA tournament.
Starting today and assuredly continuing for the next three weeks, you’ll want to punch out some of your officemates. And it’ll have nothing to do with their poor performance at work. It happens, it’s NCAA Tournament time. Everyone is a genius and re-born yesterday as Nostradamus. Violence doesn’t belong in the workplace, but it hand-to-hand combat might just necessary. And...
