Vin Scully Tells A Story About Cardinals Manager And Bird Poop (VIDEO)


By Joe Lucia, Awful Announcing

There are few things I enjoy more about baseball than Vin Scully’s commentary. Scully’s bread and butter is his neverending supply of anecdotes about players and coaches. On Thursday, it was Mike Matheny’s turn to have Scully narrate an oft-forgotten part of his life, and then…things got weird.

Yep – Mike Matheny decided to attend the University of Michigan instead of signing with the Blue Jays because a pigeon crapped on his head before his first class of the semester, and because of that, he met his wife.

Oh, and Scully managed to call all three pitches of an uninspiring Juan Uribe at bat while talking about this, too.
