    Does he still call dodgers games? I got a new app on my phone and pulled up a local broadcast of tonight's game only to hear Charley Steiner, who's fine, but I wanted to hear Vin.

    He calls Dodger home games, and, correct me if I'm wrong, he goes on the road for West Coast games only.

    Vin only does the first four innings on radio, but the entire game on local TV.

    Then I wonder why I didn't hear him. Was top 1 when i checked in. They're at home. I'm disappointed.

    Yes he does. As Baron said, it's only home games, but he still serenades me to sleep from time to time. And I don't even like the Dodgers.

    Last weekend, NFL Network aired the Niners-Cowboys NFC Championship Game from January of 1982 (The Catch game) which Scully called with Hank Stram on CBS. I was in elementary school at the time and don't remember watching it. So last week was the first time I'd had a chance to see it. He's a baseball broadcasting legend, but he was fantastic on football -- way better than anyone calling NFL games now. Unfortunate that he didn't continue doing it for very long. Anyone remember how many NFL seasons he did on CBS, or if he called football anywhere else?

    Also did "Game of the Week" on NBC with Joe Garagiola and Tom Seaver until NBC lost the contract.

    I believe he takes the night off when there's no local TV simulcast (there isn't one tonight because it's the ESPN game).

    I heard him last night on TV for the first time in a few years. His voice still sounds like he's 40 years old.

    I won't post again because I'm obviously in the minority whenever I say anything about Mr. Scully, but you can't honestly think he sounds 40.

    His pipes are noticeably weaker, but he still paints the picture as well as anyone.
