    I'm sorry, don't take this personally. That was boring. I never understood the big fascination with Vin Scully. That moved me about .01 on the Breeze scale.:thumbsdown:

    That was the point!:poke: Totally unflappable.

    Did you see the video of the studio anchor going under the desk during a similar scale earthquake.

    i watched that video this morning. scully was slow and steady, as if it were another day at the park, but i didn't find his commentary to be particularly interesting or fascinating. i wouldn't have expected anything different, given the magnitude. although i guess i'd have to give him points for the candlestick story. bottom line: the guy seems to do no wrong regardless of the situation.

    that aside, i illegally stream dodgers baseball games late at night here in God's country just to listen to him paint the picture. it never gets old.

    Harry Kalas was God. Scully is a poser. :poke::beer:

    To each his own, but I'll cast my vote for the "poser" who has been doing it longer at the major league level than Kalas.

    Hey, I would be under the desk, too, if there was an earthquake and there were big ass heavy lights hanging over my head. I don't know why people making fun of that guy never acknowledge the danger there is in that environment.

    "The two-two to Sand-berg...

    Swung
    on
    and
    missed

    And Hersh-heiser gets him on a change."

    I can hear Scully as I type that.

    Hearing Harry Kalas discuss another Jimmy Rollins groundout to second never did it for me, but he was great on NFL Films segments.

    Here's another one I can picture as I type...

    "Heh, hehheh, You know, Steve,
    Sammy Sosa spelled backwards is Why-Mass Ass-oss...
    And heeeeeeee popped it up."
