## Dick Vitale, algebraic wizard and Ryan Braun hater

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Ring the math bell, because Dickie V. is taking us to math school.

Alright, so this is the equation we're working with:

NO WAY BRAUN should be allowed in a uniform = (LIAR) - (CHEAT) - (FRAUD!)

In other words:

- (BRAUN should be allowed in a uniform) = (LIAR) - (CHEAT) - (FRAUD!)

Let's employ some algebra and try to get Ryan Braun into a uniform again.

(CHEAT) + (FRAUD!) = (LIAR) + (BRAUN should be allowed in a uniform)

And now, to express the equation in terms of Braun being allowed in a uniform:

(CHEAT) + (FRAUD!) - (LIAR) = BRAUN should be allowed in a uniform

We've got it!
