Scully on ScullyA video of Vin Scully reflecting on his near 60-year career in the booth. Try not to mist up a bit when he says that "the wolves are getting near the campfire."
In other news, I'd listen to Vin Scully read the instructions for heating up a microwave burrito.

Absolutely. The man is amazing. After getting XM, I found myself listening to a lot of Dodger games.
I just read that Scully will be inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame. That’s a easy scoring fly ball right there.

Great piece from the man’s mouth. Even though I’m not a Dodgers’ fan, I’d catch myself listening to Vin either through MLB Gameday Audio or on XM at the start of games. There’s not a better storyteller as an announcer today, and he doesn’t seem to have lost anything the times I’ve heard him. Thanks for the link.

I grew up in L.A. and have listened to thousands of broadcasts with Scully. He truly is the best. That being said, his mistakes over the past several years have been many and easily noticeable, but because he’s been so great for so long, they are easily forgiveable.
