To celebrate Dick Vitale's 35th year at the network, ESPN got a whole crew of its commentators to take a stab at imitating his iconic ebullience. Sean Farnham got the ball rolling with deranged inaccuracy, Mike Greenberg gave him sort of a New York accent, Chris Fowler nailed it, and on it goes with alternating awfulness and brilliance.

Be sure you make it to the 2:10-mark to see Bruce Pearl throw his whole body into it.
