I loved those 2 guys too.
But for those of us that are old enough to remember Bob Kelley doing the Rams games was a treat also.
LA Sports fans were so lucky to have had Vin Scully and Chick Hearn for so many years. They were two of the best ever.
Vin Scully was a part of my life growing up in the 60s and 70s. He and Jerry Doggett were the voices of the Dodgers. Vin was not just a great broadcaster, he was one of the true class individuals. His love of the game came through in all of his broadcasts. I know Giant fans, who hated the Dodgers, but always held a great respect for Vin. Vin and Jerry always did great interviews with key players after each game. If the Dodgers lost, that interview would be with a player from the opposing team. Always great interviews, and allowed us to know the players better.
Vin will be truly missed. Certainly, he lived a long and full life. Still a sad day.
