So much for that survey the Dodgers were sending around to their season ticket holders. Legendary Dodgers' announcer Vin Scully decided to take it upon himself to quash that silly thing and announce he's returning for a 63rd season. He made the announcement with a cookie in-hand before the top half of an inning during the Dodgers/Rockies game Friday night.
Here's video of his announcement via MLB.tv:
No, we don't want Scully to ever be quiet and eat his cookie ...
Scully was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982 and Radio Hall of Fame in 1995, has called three perfect games, 19 no-hitters, 25 World Series (hopefully one more?) and 12 All-Star games in his career. He has a Life Achievement Emmy Award for sportscasting, ranks 2nd on my personal all-time favorite announcers list behind Ernie Harwell, and I'm confident recordings of his voice will one day help cure cancer.
Yeah, he's a rock star announcer, so we should be quiet (and eat those leftover cookies) and just be grateful we're able to listen to him for one more year.
Joe Buck annoys the Hell out of me. I hate his style. But Chris Rose is straight bad. How this guy is on a national stage baffles me. At least with Buck you know you're getting someone who's capable.
It is Joe Buck easily. Besides his disdain for the Yankees in the post season, dude has managed to convince the folks at Fox to ruin two of our country's favorite sports. I think he has a box of photos of folks in the media because sports writers and talking heads adore him.
This isn’t a good matchup. Both should advance to the second round, especially after Chris Rose acting as a host for the BCS on FOX. That was unbearable. Overall though, Joe Buck is on way too much. So there is my vote
