#ThrowbackThursday – Happy 85th, Vin Scully
Living legend Vin Scully celebrates his 85th birthday today, so why not honor the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time) with a short #ThrowbackThursday post.
KTLA broke down Scully’s top-five calls in his career and while Nos. 1 and 2 are obvious, I don’t know about the other three. Iconic sports moments, surely. But what makes Scully better than anyone who has ever lived is when he’s in the sixth inning of a 3-2 game in August.
The game doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things, but Scully treats it like it’s Game 7 of the World Series and he will give you anecdotes, notes and musings. That’s what makes him great. Every time he’s behind the microphone it’s something special.
Happy Birthday, Vin!
