So much for that survey the Dodgers were sending around to their season ticket holders. Legendary Dodgers’ announcer Vin Scully decided to take it upon himself to quash that silly thing and announce he’s returning for a 63rd season. He made the announcement with a cookie in-hand before the top half of an inning during the Dodgers/Rockies game Friday night.
Here’s video of his announcement via MLB.tv:
No, we don’t want Scully to ever be quiet and eat his cookie …
Scully was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982 and Radio Hall of Fame in 1995, has called three perfect games, 19 no-hitters, 25 World Series (hopefully one more?) and 12 All-Star games in his career. He has a Life Achievement Emmy Award for sportscasting, ranks 2nd on my personal all-time favorite announcers list behind Ernie Harwell, and I’m confident recordings of his voice will one day help cure cancer.
Yeah, he’s a rock star announcer, so we should be quiet (and eat those leftover cookies) and just be grateful we’re able to listen to him for one more year.
