    The Dodger victory Sunday was No. 100, and the fourth year in a row of 100+ wins.
    No other team, in the history of major league baseball, has ever won 100+ games four years in a row.
    Well done.

    The man was a master of his art, never speaking when it wasn’t necessary, and never omitting an important detail. He let the roar of the crowd tell the listener that the ball was heading over the fence, and he never became a partisan cheerleader.

    Irreplaceable.

    Last night, the San Francisco Giants hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers, but only after a moving pre-game honor, and moment of silence.
    The New York Times today has three full pages on his life and legacy.

    R.I.P., Mr Scully.
    There was only 1 time in my life I EVER cheered for an LA team was the 1988 World Series. And, my Lord, his call of the Kirk Gibson homerun...chef's kiss. And the way that entire episode was handled in Ken Burns' Baseball was incredible.

    Red, Vince, Curt, Harry, Marty...God must have one hell of a great sports radio station in heaven!

    My favorite Vin Scully in game story. Giving out life lessons when you don't know you need them. What a legend.
