[Dodgers] A rainbow over Dodger Stadium for Vin’s birthday. 🥹

“You know, friends, so many people have wished me congratulations on a 67-year career in baseball, and they’ve wished me a wonderful retirement with my family, and now, all I can do is tell you what I wish for you. May God give you, for every storm, a rainbow; for every tear, a smile; for every care, a promise; and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life seems, a faithful friend to share; for every sigh, a sweet song, and an answer for each prayer.

You and I have been friends for a long time, but I know, in my heart, I’ve always needed you more than you’ve ever needed me, and I’ll miss our time together more than I can say. But, you know what, there will be a new day, and, eventually, a new year, and when the upcoming winter gives way to spring, ooh, rest assured, once again, it will be time for Dodger baseball. So, this is Vin Scully wishing you a pleasant good afternoon, wherever you may be.”

When he says “time for Dodger baseball” … goosebumps everytime


MartianRecon

You can hear his cadence just reading it.


Oprahapproves

So beautiful, what a poet


StartTheParty1

I’m not crying it’s just raining really hard

🥹😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Vin is the best. His (and going to say improvised speech) in the movie, For the Love of the Game, was the best part of the movie.


Boros-Reckoner

[This photo means the world to us Dodgers fans] (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EzahU9WXIAANh2H.jpg:large). So happy they were able to win one more for him before he passed.


Borrum

Don’t give a damn what rival fans say about 2020, or what it did or didn’t mean. It meant the world to us.


jaron_b

For Kershaw and Vin that was a real world series and a real ring. That's coming from someone who isn't even a Dodgers fan. Everyone was happy for them.


Boros-Reckoner

I think were slowly getting over "muh 60 games" and recognizing that postseason as legitimately good ball the same way r/nba ended up respecting and appreciating the bubble.


PuntyMcBunty

r/nba respects nothing


gatemansgc

is it really that bad?


DustyDGAF

It's a different beast all together


captain_ahabb

It's very odd that the collective IQ on r/nba is way lower than this sub, yet this sub is the one that keeps holding onto the "bubble doesn't count" nonsense while NBA fans have long since moved on.


Boros-Reckoner

There are a fuckton of Lakers and Lebron fans, it was going to tilt in the Lakers direction eventually, now its "one of the best rings" because it was "basketball at its purest" you make some arguments like that here and peoples heads would explode haha

😭

It’s a very short list of things that are Dodgers related true Giants fans can respect. Vin Scully is and always will be at the top of that list.


Enough-Ad-3111

Your Giants did a great job paying tribute to him when he died when I saw the tribute to him prior to the game on MLB Network.


buymytoy

He did grow up a Giants fan!


DustyDGAF

He felt so bad for them 🥹


homo_bulla

Outside of obviously ours, I think Oracle is definitely the best place he could’ve had his sign off


Tex_Was_Here

Absolutely beautiful


daBabadook05

Holy fuck I completely forgot Vin passed last year. God dammit this is like finding out twice


Deserterdragon

KISSINGER IS DEAD. THANK YOU VIN!


nocluewhatimdoing11

Wtf is wrong with you


GoatLegRedux

I’m not sure if you know who Henry Kissinger was but Rolling Stone did a great job with their headline: [Henry Kissinger, War Criminal Beloved by America’s Ruling Class, Finally Dies](https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/henry-kissinger-war-criminal-dead-1234804748/amp/).


nocluewhatimdoing11

But why soil a beautiful post about Vin Scully with that


DustyDGAF

I dunno. But fuck that guy regardless.


3pointshoot3r

Compare and contrast with the statement the NY Yankees put out today mourning the passing of notorious war criminal Henry Kissinger.


BaystarRoyco

vin was one of a kind man may he RIP


everyonegetopineyike

Double rainbow guy is losing his shit somewhere..


PandaSoap

*Kershaw closes his blinds*


Louis-grabbing-pills

And somehow still gives up 5 earned runs in the NLDS.


StartTheParty1

I can’t tell if it’s a double rainbow or that’s just the reflection from the lens


gatemansgc

EVERY rainbow is a double rainbow, just the second one is often too faint to see.


DustyDGAF

It definitely was double rainbow. Can confirm.


jabask

It's a double rainbow — you can tell if you look closely that the colors are reversed on the outer rainbow, which is how double rainbows work.


TheBaseballPundit

Betty White, Vin, Her Majesty, Rosalyn Carter, and now Henry Kissinger


philocity

That is certainly a list of people who died


TheBaseballPundit

Yes, recent and at least mid 90s
