    RIP to the amazing Vin Scully….who is cutting onions? Fuck, man. An absolute privilege to get to listen to him growing up. I never knew how good I had it but I was extremely lucky.

    I had a feeling Vinny had taken a turn. He attends Mass at my friend's parish, and he hadn't seen him in three weeks, which is unlike Vinny.

    God rest his sweet soul. I love you, Vin. Say hello to my Dad for me.

    Oh. Gotcha. I thought he did something as a tribute or something.

    Shit. I'm actually getting emotional over Vin. I'm a mess. Gnight, fellas.

    I'm just gutted right now. The man certainly had a full, impactful life, and influenced so many. We should all be so lucky. Still, it's a day I had hoped would never come. Just so very sad.

    everyone can have their opinions about the 2020 season but i was feeling pretty good not only about the championship but about Tommy and Vin witnessing it

    Kind of numb. Lost a piece of my heart tonight. Sad that he's gone, but happy and privileged to have been a loyal listener.

    Started listening to the great Vin in 1960. Listened to every pitch of the perfect game, my Vin highlight.

    It wasn't that he was the best to ever do it, but that he did it with class and humility.

    RIP old friend.

    Have to give Joe Davis a lot credit for a job well done under difficult (to say the least) circumstances.

    I recall Vin having to deal with Big D's passing on the air. Davis carried on in Vin's tradition.

    Sobbed in my wife's arms when Vin retired. Such a huge part of my childhood and early adulthood. You all feel the same I am sure. Sad to hear of his passing, but am so far removed from those days that is hasn't quite sunk in yet. I know it will eventually. RIP. Love that man.

    have a lot on vin memories, as we all do
    but loved listening to him talk about my favorite dodger ever, don drysdale
    this is vin calling dd breaking walter johnson’s scoreless inning record (later broken by orel)
    always gives me chills
    today it brings me tears
    god bless you vin
    and thank you for bringing so much joy to so many of us
