Dick Vitale Doing Play-By-Play For ‘Jaws’ Is Your First Must-See March Madness Highlight

In the spirit of March Madness, IFC had Dick Vitale do a little warmup of sorts before the NCAA tournament gets into full swing by having him do play-by-play for classic movies. One of those movies happened to be Jaws. And honestly, the inset picture-in-picture of Vitale wearing his broadcasting headset while Jaws just mauls anything and everything in the ocean is funny all by its lonesome.

But he also did offer up some pretty helpful analysis, just like he does during basketball games.

“The thing about Jaws is he’s constantly moving.”

He’s not wrong. Jaws constantly has you on your heels. You never get a breather and there’s no possibility of dictating the pace. It’s like the Pitino press, except you cannot take timeouts and you can actually die.

Vitale goes on to acknowledge Quint as a member of the “all-eaten team” — as seen in the photo above — and finds a beautiful way to work in “he’s on fire.” Sadly, Dicky V did not call Jaws a diaper dandy, presumably so as not to offend the merciless beast.

IFC also had Vitale do the same thing for The Matrix and Rocky, where he took some bold shots at Drago and Tommy Gunn, but Dicky V talking Neo truly brought him out of his comfort zone.
