vin scully:

“I would say my big problem is, I really don’t (pause)… I think God has given me so many gifts,” he says. “He gave me the job that I loved at a very tender age. He’s allowed me to do the job reasonably well. He’s given me my health. He’s given me my years. And having received all these gifts, it’s pretty hard to then go out and say, ‘Yes, I certainly do deserve whatever.’ And so that always bothers me. And some people talk about modesty like you use it as a weapon to get more, and that’s the last thing I want to do. So instinctively, I would just as soon give thanks for what I have without actually taking a bow. So I basically say, ‘Thank you very much,’ and move on. And I certainly don’t dwell on the honor or whatever it might be. I accept it, I hope, gracefully and gratefully, and then that’s it. Turn the page and move on.”

you’re a good man, vin. it’s time for dodger playoff baseball.
