I Couldn't Make This Stuff Up If I tried.

If I told you that for a Los Angeles Times article about Dick Vitale published in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune the automated Google Adbar produced an ad for tickets to a certain school's college basketball games, could you guess which one? (Scroll down to the bottom of the article).

Or do you need a clue?

"Anybody who thinks [Vitale's] putting on an act is crazy," [coach Mike] Krzyzewski said. "He does get that excited. He's speaking from his heart. He puts it out there. He's not afraid of saying something that might be controversial. He's usually right."

Well, there you have it. The Google Adbar objectively affirms Lute Olson's nickname, "Dukie V," for ESPN's most prominent analyst.
