Legendary Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully went on a legendary tangent last night after reading a Twitter poll to the fans at home. After saying the options "#HittersPark" or "#PitchersPark" he asked the question on every person's mind over the age of 65, "what in the world is hashtag?"
Vin took part in an offseason Twitter Q&A with the Dodgers, but he must have missed the reasoning for the #AskVin hashtag.
Scully then seamlessly moves to more things that don't make sense, namely, DirecTV's new DogTV channel, which as it indicates is television for dogs. Again, Vin asks the question on everyone's mind. How do you sell sponsors to dogs? What's the point of advertising when human beings are away from the television? And why not a channel made for cats? These are the kind of insights that have separated from Vin Scully from other announcers for over six decades.
Usually, when an old man starts complaining like this, many of us tune him out or think he's delusional. When Scully does it, its poignant social commentary. I wish he would've been doing Cubs' games the last 3 seasons
@awfulannouncing I'll bet when he was broadcasting from Ebbets field he didn't think he'd be discussing Twitter and Facebook.
@dmowb Vin Scully is the King!
