VIDEO: Stadium Series gets stirring intro from Vin Scully, Bob Miller
The Stadium Series in Los Angeles got the intro it deserved from legendary broadcasters Vin Scully of the Dodgers and Bob Miller from the Kings.
The NHL may be invading one of baseball’s cathedrals for one night, but the Dodger influence was still felt right from the beginning. Before the puck was dropped, legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully provided the narration for an introductory video for the game between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks.
As mentioned in an earlier post, Scully sure has a way of making everything sound more important. With one of the great voices in the history of professional sports providing the soundtrack, the stage could not have been set better for this historic event.
Scully, along with Kings play-by-play man Bob Miller also provided an in-person welcome to the fans and introduced the game’s opening ceremonies which included a performance from the USC marching band, the players’ entrance, national anthem and the introduction of “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky, who dropped the puck for the ceremonial first faceoff.
Say what you want about the influx of NHL outdoor games, the league is doing this one about as right as you could hope for.
