Dick Vitale has got some 'splainin to do (Pinched)

Vitale was on a Knoxville radio station on Monday morning and it could probably not have turned out worse for ole Dick. The hosts go to Vitale and he has his phone down on the table or something and does not realize that he is on the air. What transpires is legendary radio. Vitale is telling someone that Billy Donovan told him in confidence that NBA scouts are making a mistake if they take Horford over Noah, and that Noah can't shoot. I think the exact quote is that Donovan said "no way he would take Noah over Horford." The hosts asking him about who he likes between Horford and Noah later when he realizes he is on is great too. Later, Vitale calls back in after he is told that what he said was on the air, and has to come up with some kind of excuse, which is equally funny. This will soon be all over the internet. Big ups to Gary Parrish for the heads up. He has it on his sportsline blog.
