    Perhaps no one understands the game of life—and particularly how to play it with enthusiasm, energy and verve—than the inimitable Dick Vitale. Seemingly emblematic of his own last name in that he’s always full of vitality, Vitale shares with audiences his secrets for tacking the problems of life head-on, with the boundless optimism he seems to possess in large amounts. Vitale speaks enthusiastically about the lessons learned from sports and how to apply them to business and daily life. Dick uses a combination of humor and inspiration drawn from his career as a sixth grade teacher, a college and professional basketball coach, and years as one of the best known—and perhaps most beloved—network basketball analysts in history.
