Sorry Verne Lundquist, but Dick Vitale wins this one. In a recent interview with John Ourand of SportsBusiness Journal, Lundquist weighed in on his favorite announcers, stating that, “I’m a big Dan Shulman fan. I’m not such a big fan of his partner, [Dick] Vitale. He’s an acquired taste.”
In classic Dickie V style, he responded to Lundquist’s criticism with aplomb on Twitter.
I’ve been a big fan of Verne Lundquist 4 yrs -Love his spirit-Found out he is not one of my fans that’s cool -Love my bride & she gets on me

Did I read that correctly, Dickie V? Did you say Lundquist’s criticism doesn’t phase you because your wife gets on you?
