Vin Scully in the Vin Scully Press Box

Want to thank John Fay for handing me the blog keys for the first two legs of this road trip, if only because I get to share this....

Decided to top off my Coca-Cola before tonight's game started and encountered Vin Scully at the entrance to the press dining area. I reached to open the door for him, but he grabbed the handle first.

"Allow me," he said in that one-of-a-kind voice. "I'm on the door."

Very, very cool moment.

I am sure it is cool to meet him in person, but his mono-broadcast can get little irksome.

Kevin,

I grew up in LA, but, a reds fan.....I fell asleep every night listening to Vin, no offense to Marty; but, Vin Scully is the best!

having spent a portion of my youth in southern california, just hearing vin's voice brought back a rush of childhood memories.

and, as an aside, dodger stadium remains one of the absolute best in all of baseball to watch a game. the place is just timeless and the setting almost unmatched.
