I've been in mourning since August 29th of last year. It's been a long, private grieving, knowing the end would be coming soon. And now it's here. This Sunday it's all over. Vin Scully is blessing us with his final broadcast. Ever.
From the moment I could walk, talk or understand the spoken word, there was only one voice that was in my house, in my parents' cars, even in my ear when I went to camp or snuck a transistor radio into school -- Vin Scully.
Vin Scully is much more than the one of the greatest sportscasters ever: he is an artist who has distinguished himself with his poetic use of language, his gracious and dignified demeanor and his dramatic calls of some of the greatest moments in baseball history.
