Dick Vitale's Weirdest Summer Tweets of 2012
He loves to Tweet
By: Braden Gall | 9/18/12, 2:00 PM EDT
Dick Vitale is one weird dude. He tweets about 1,000 times per day and has lots to say. He has done loads of great work in support of the fight against cancer, loves his Tampa Bay Rays, Notre Dame football and, obviously, college hoops.
But occasionally, the crazy train goes off the tracks, culminating in some very weird (and sometimes awesome) tweets. In fact, today he tweeted this random rant against one misunderstood Hollywood youth:
Sept. 18: The strangest Dickie-V tweet I've seen in months was today's random obsession with protecting the people of Southern Cal from the tortures of a Hollywood actress by the name of Amanda Bynes, who is a stunning 26-year-old beauty who has (apparently) acted a little weird of late. But isn't that part of living in Los Angeles?
Oh keep this young starlet off the road - beware in LA area of Amanda Bynes ishe feels she is above the law - stop her b4 too late— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) September 18, 2012
Sept. 16: We know Mike Greenberg is a Jets fan, but NFL analysis packaged with celebrity dating insight combined with smack talk is priceless:
Get ready Jet lovers @espngreeny4 an 8-8 season - MEDIOCRITY AT BEST - at least Mark Sanchez gets to cry on Eva Longoria's shoulder.— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) September 17, 2012
Aug: 24: The hoops legend is apparently starting his own dating service. And equally concerning, he is hanging out at Chili's:
Come on guys Dickie's Dating Service - 4 beautiful young ladies looking 4 MR RIGHT -@ Chili's Grill & Bar instagr.am/p/Ot4XvKArUs/— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 24, 2012
Aug 23: I think many of us were sick to our stomachs when we read about this horrific story. Yet, sending your heart out to someone who is already passed on seems a bit odd. Am I wrong?
I am sick-can't believe what I am reading 33 yrold NJmom decapitates son (2yrs) places head in freezer - heart breaks 4 that little guy.— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 23, 2012
Sept. 16: Vitale is a man who likes a woman with a great...personality:
Can the BUCS hang on as Greg Schiano is in East Rutherford NJ where his Mom & Dad went to HS-with me?Had crush on his MOM- She was smart!— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) September 16, 2012
Aug 29: The old coach longing for swim trunks and acting like a pre-teen:
Poolside - wish I had a bathing suit baby- will go 4 lunch to news cafe South Beach - I am acting 12 - what instagr.am/p/O6n49FgrYb/— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 29, 2012
Sept. 11: Tweeting about the Rays is nothing special, but this is the only one that talked about a spoiled Italian dish:
The Orioles have just ruined my Chicken Parmiagiana /Rigatoni as they r beating up on my RAYS . Buck S has done a fab job .— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) September 12, 2012
Sept. 6: This is our first known documentation of Dick Vitale's apparent obsession with Amanda Bynes — and the people of Southern California:
BULLETIN -ifin LA area stay away from actress Amanda Byrnes if she is driving -charged with hit / runtwice! PLEASE stay away baby!— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) September 6, 2012
Aug 31: Dick Vitale complaing about money is like Jennifer Anniston complaing about aging well. It just doesn't work in my book:
SICK of the rip off by NFL in these exhibition games. - TIX prices absurd 4 watching 2nd & 3rd string players . NFL a cash cow abuses fans!'— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 31, 2012
Aug 31: So glad he cleared this up for me, cause I thought for sure he was talking about What I Did Last Summer. Wait, am I thinking about Scream 1, 2, 3 or 4? Also, Wazzu should be 3-1 after this weekend.
Mike Leach had a tough debut @ Washington St as his Cougars ( not Courteney Cox) were ripped by BYU.Could be a long long yr 4 Mr Leach— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 31, 2012
Aug 29: There is no chance THIS guy has ever been THIS club while there were other living beings inside. Just imagine DV at Aria in Vegas? Yup, made me laugh too:
One of the hottest clubs in USA - CLUB LIV @ the fontainbleau twitter.com/DickieV/status…— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 29, 2012
Aug. 16: Dickie-V is jaded just like the rest of us with politics. However, nominating himself for President is a bit much for this American voter to take:
I am already tired of the POLITICAL ADS - A waste of CASH - much BS BABY! Give those dollars to THOSE IN NEED / DICKIE V 4 PREZ— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 16, 2012
Aug 15: His take on domestic abuse is spot on. But as a man who has never resorted to physical violence towards women, I am not sure what "system" he is talking about. Unless, of course, he is talking about spending lots of time and money to impress women with nothing expected in return:
Sick reading about athletes involved in DOMESTIC VIOLENCE - no place 4 it get strong ladies DON'T TAKE IT! Many guys spoiled by system— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 15, 2012
Aug 3: Uh, I have no idea what to tell you here:
Z— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) August 4, 2012
June 8: From my count, Dickie V wished Magic Johnson and maybe one or two other people happy birthday this summer. Also on that list? The oft-troubled rapper/producer Kanye West — who has a long list of legal trouble:
