Los Angeles said goodbye to the Dodgers' longtime (67 years) play-by-play announcer.
No, he didn't die or anything. Yesterday was his last home game. Scully was honored
throughout a tear-filled weekend by the team and celebrities, including Kevin Costner, whose hideous soul patch
made us wish he was also old and retiring.
Starting with the team back in its Brooklyn Dodgers days, Scully took over for broadcaster Red Barber after he got into a salary dispute with The Gillette Company (razors), and never looked back, moving with the team to Los Angeles for the 1958 season. Although the Dodgers haven't been to the World Series since 1988, Scully witnessed them win their six World Series titles, and he must have shared his Austin Powers' mojo
with the current squad, because yesterday the Dodgers clinched the NL West for the fourth year in a row, this time in dramatic fashion
Don't be bummed if you missed the celebration, Scully's real last game is Sunday Oct. 2 against the SF Giants. Make sure to tune-in (and bring a box of tissues).
