Vin Scully passed at 94. For anyone who grew up in southern CA in the late 50s and 60s, Vin was baseball. Went to bed many nights listening to him and Jerry Dogatt, Damn - have been expecting this but did not want it to happen. Chick Hearn with the Lakers and Vin with the Dodgers was the Golden Age of sports in So.Cal

50's & 60's?  Haven't watched/listened to baseball in a few decades, I'd say, A4E?

Ribbing you, of course, but as a life longing Padres fan, who went to his first game in '77, I hate the doggers more than any sports team I know, even the raiders, and I'm not a hater.  But to myself, and those friends who I consider ardent baseball fans, Vin was a cut above.  Pure class, knowledgeable, unbias.  I remember Vin and Joe Garagiola calling the game of the week on NBC on Sundays in the 80's.  Legend....I can say he is the best baseball announcer, if not the greatest sports caster, of my lifetime.  RIP

I've always hoped we'd offine one day. Now more so.

Hockey HOF’er Bobby Hull at 84.

In 1972 I sat a few seats away from Bobby Hull at the Vancouver game of the first Canada-Russia hockey series. Hull wasn’t allowed to play because he had left the NHL for the upstart WHA.

All night kids kept walking past me to get to Hull and request an autograph. He did not turn a single kid away, even those who asked for multiple autographs for their friends and relatives. He engaged in a very short conversation with most of them. He was a real gentleman, and a great ambassador for pro hockey.

RIP, Mr Hull.
