ESPN's Matthew Berry Is A Big ***** Van ***** Fan, Says ESPN's Content Filter

The screencap above was taken from ESPN's fantasy homepage, which features a live-updating, scrolling box containing tweets from ESPN's various fantasy sports writers. You'll notice that the second tweet on the list, sent by Matthew Berry, looks a little odd. Who the hell is ***** Van *****?

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.
