It's Dick Van Dyke, of course, but poor Matthew had his tweet unnecessarily censored by ESPN's automated content filter, which reckons words like "dick" and "dyke" big no-nos. These are the breaks that come with working for a Disney owned company, but we personally appreciate the reminder that Dick Van Dyke's name is rather hilarious when, you know, you really think about it.
