God bless Vin Scully
You never know who you're going to share an elevator with at the ballpark. I thought you might like to hear this one.
Wanted to share a small moment from the other night:
Three of us are waiting for the elevator following a Dodgers-Angels series finale in Anaheim. Now, two of us, you don’t care about. The third is Vin Scully.
Scully is dapper as usual in a coat and tie, but we notice he’s wearing a brace on his left hand and wrist. Tendinitis, he says. He wears the brace every so often.
A joke or two is exchanged, and then Scully delivers -- as you would expect -- the perfect, self-deprecating line.
“I was telling somebody earlier that I should just tell people I’ve gotten interested in falconry,” he said, smiling broadly. “And I’m waiting for the bird.
“That would be a better story, wouldn’t it?”
Now, close your eyes and replay that quote again in your head, in Scully’s voice.
