You know, when Jim Valvano died and everyone in his world swore to fight cancer, we figured it would be a passing thing, and for many people it was.Â But for Dick Vitale, it has become a consuming passion.
Like everyone we suspect, we have fun with Vitale once in awhile.Â But Andy Staples is right:Â the man has thrown himself into the fight and has never stopped.Â And anyone who raises $100 million is busting his butt.Â So yes, Dickie V, an easy man to lampoon or even ridicule has in this way risen to nobility and become, without question, a heroic figure.
