Vin Scully retires at the end of this season, his sixty-seventh year doing what nobody has ever done better. Among other things, he has made some classic calls in the course of a glorious broadcasting career. He may not have ever made a better one than he did during Friday night’s Dodgers-Brewers game (video below): “Socialism, failing to work as it always does. This time in Venezuela. You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden, there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez. Hello.”
As usual, Mr. Scully goes to the heart of the matter with perfect concision. Twitchy pays tribute. Tim Siedell observes: “Only Vin Scully can take down an entire political system between pitches.”
