For those of us who came of age in the 1980s and early 1990s watching baseball, you know the joy of listening to Vin Scully call a game.

He's the best in baseball history, and whenever you have a chance to hear him talk, either during a game or not, please take a moment to do so. You just don't know the next time you'll have that opportunity (unless of course you live in Los Angeles or watch all the Dodgers games on MLB TV).

Most everyone has their own personal Vin Scully story (I've got at least three I can think of). But just as the Bronx-born and Fordham graduate Scully has always been smart enough to stay out of his own way, I will do the same here and just embed the code from his interview on WFAN with Mike Francesa on Wednesday.
