I’m sure some of you Old Raisins only heard him on the old Ham Radio. Im also sure some of you Old Raisins don’t give a schit for a Dodger guy. However, RIP.

RIP Scully. There have been a lot of copycats, but Vin Scully was in a league of his own. An early mentor was another great one--and a Gator--Red Barber.

All the great announcers came up announcing on the radio.. If you can call a game on radio you've got skills.. Too many EO hires these days instead
of professionals...

Back when announcers had real skills...Ya know you're getting old when...

May the Lord welcome you with open arms. Maybe he'll call the "Big Dance" at Armageddon Field?

Vin Scully in 2017
“It’s not that I’m such great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year — didn’t go anywhere, didn’t do anything — but I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. The only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game.”
