Vin Scully Lost His World Series Ring In A Bag Of Costco Ribs


Famed Dodgers announcer Vin Scully lost a World Series ring while shopping with his wife at an Los Angeles-area Costco Thursday -- and the Dodgers broadcasted the news to the world.

As the Los Angeles Times noted, Scully has won six World Series rings with the team and gave all but the 1988 ring to his children. The latter represents the Dodgers' Series victory over the powerful Oakland A's that began with the Game 1-winning homer by Kirk Gibson. "In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened," Scully said in his memorable play-by-play.

Thankfully for the 87-year-old broadcaster, the ring mystery also had a happy ending. The ring apparently fell off his finger into a bag of Costco ribs. That's where his wife, Sandi, reportedly discovered it when they returned home from shopping. "I'm still laughing about it," he told the Times.
