It has been a real hectic four days as I have been followed by the cameras of ESPN. That’s right, for the All Access Dickie V show, which will be shown on ESPNU February 8th at 6:30 pm right before Duke plays UNC. It is in honor of my 40th Duke/UNC game I have announced. Obviously those games have been very special to me and I have great great memories from them. It has been a tremendous experience having the cameras following me around. It has been hectic, not for me, but for them. They have had a tough time keeping up with my schedule. They followed me working out with my grandkids in tennis, basketball, baseball and lacrosse. For dinner at Le Colonne in which I had a meeting egarding the V Gala in May. Joining us were event chairs Joe and Mary Barbetta, John and Barb Moran, Craig and Joellen Mettille, and John Strasser and Pam Valvano Strasser. They have also joined me on the road doing games. Thursday they went with me to North Carolina versus North Carolina State. They got a chance to see me behind the scenes with coaches Roy Williams, Mark Gottfried and company. Then they made the journey to Cameron Indoor Stadium with me for Duke versus St. John’s. I had the pleasure of working with Mike Patrick for the Carolina game and Brent Musburger at the Duke game. They spent many a hours at the Broken Egg Restaurant. They watched as I marketed and sold merchandise to raise money for cancer research. In all, it was an incredible few days. It certainly got emotional at times talking about all the memories and all the great things that have happened during my tenure at ESPN. ESPN has certainly become a second family. The people have been so phenomenal to me and have allowed me to live a life that has exceeded any of my dreams. The show was produced by David Kraft from ESPN and his staff.
