Spike Lee ‘Likes Dick,’ Pause
Spike Lee straight up says he “likes Dick,” when talking about Dan Dickau. If you notice, after Spike’s slip, Gus Johnson calmly slides in a “pause.” As I’ve come to learn, such use of the word “pause” is another way of saying that the reference was not homosexual — not that there’s anything wrong with that. So there you have Spike Lee saying he likes Dick, and a professional broadcaster working in a hip-hop type reference all in the same setting. As noted in the title of the video on YouTube, one of the most professional uses of the word pause you can find.
