It’s always a great happening when two awesome things come together.  That happened last night in Los Angeles where the most legendary active broadcaster in sports, Vin Scully, met one of the most legendary trophies in sports, the Stanley Cup.  With the Los Angeles Kings winning the Stanley Cup, it made the short jaunt over to Dodger Stadium so Scully could see it for the first time.

Of course, this being Vin, he told a story about being a hockey fan growing up and his favorite player – goalie Dave Kerr from the New York Rangers.  In case you’re curious, Kerr played for the Rangers from 1934-1941 and won the Vezina Trophy in 1940.

Scully also joked about the Kings making margaritas in the Stanley Cup, which is maybe the best use of the trophy in its illustrious history.
