Damn straight.  Classy individual rewarded by a classy organization.

Applause.

I'd bet money somebody was haunted by the ghost of Tommy Lasorda until they gave a ring to Vinny.

Good.

I hadn't heard that Lasorda passed. I'm sorry he's gone. Used to love the way he'd wave to Giants fans when they booed him. Even as a Giants fan I had to admire that. RIP Tommy, we'll never see another like you.

His absence at the ring ceremony was glaring.

Tommy LOVED to play the bad guy at Giants games, and we loved to play along. The last time I saw him at one, he milked it for everything he was worth, taking a slow trot around the bases, soaking in the 'love'. It was so much fun to boo him.

Don't get me wrong, Vin is a legend, but I never enjoyed announcers, there are many, who drone on endlessly about ball players who have been dead fifty years or longer. They are irrelevant to today's game.

I'm old enough to remember when you could actually wear a championship ring on your finger. The rings they

make now are the size of diamond-studded anvils.

You're a Giants fan and didn't know that Lasorda died?  That's...curious.

That's like being a fan of all that is good and wonderful about the world and not knowing that Steinbrenner died.

Why is he entitled to World Series recognition for landing a plane on the river?

I'll bet you are a riot at parties; FYI, Scully had more interesting stories to tell in one game than you will have in an entire lifetime.

Tommy Lasorda meltdown about Kurt Bevacqua

one of my all time favorite sports rants.  to baseball specifically, Lee Elia's "[wrigley] is a playground for assholes", "don't rip those farkin' guys, rip my farkin' ass!" is probably better but this is my favorite Tommy moment.

For those two baseball rants is like The Wire and The Sopranos. Depends on which I heard last makes it the best.

Vin Scully calling those 59 magical innings back in '88 is what turned me into a lifelong Dodgers fan.

what i love about Elia's is, it was like, April 15.  meaning, the season had just started.  it wasn't him in August or September, it was like, the 15th game of the year and he snapped that badly on the fans.

Here it is in all its glory.  "85% of the world's workin!  the other 15% come here!  It's a playground for cocksuckers!"

God I am howling at this.  "MY.  farkIN'.  ASS!"

I've held one of the Yankees' rings from '77.  It's still something a human would reasonably wear.

Nope, just imagine you are one of those trumpers who think the election was stolen.

Vin Scully is from the generation of announcers who can never be replaced.  They can weave stories in between the play by play without skipping a beat.  One of the best traits is often knowing when to let the crowd and moment speak for itself rather than filling with meaningless chatter.  A quick search of great calls brought up this example.  Notice how many he makes the call, then is wise enough to let things speak for themselves for so many of these great moments.

I am so glad the Dodgers honored him with a ring.  He deserved it for all the years and great moments he gave Dodgers fans and the fact that he is retired and wasn't there to make the call last year makes me sad.  He certainly has earned retirement with his decades of amazing calls, but the game is a little less with his absence.

Let's not forget Kevin Cash making one of the worst pitching moves in the history of baseball to help the Dodgers

I hope somebody sits with Vin soon for like a couple weeks straight just to get his impressions of random ballplayers.

It's almost as if something happened the day before Lasorda died that overshadowed that news item.

And you completely stopped paying attention to baseball after that day?
