“If he was starting out today,he wouldnt be hired!”
Gosh He’s so old even his ‘trophy’ wife looks old.
All kidding aside, we love Vinny. Thanks for all the great years.
“and here come the pretzels.”
Funniest impersonation ever.
Quite a big deal. Impressive.
OH congrat to Vinnie
I read the article to try and find out whose previous record he surpassed. No luck.
Yes,really. I know nothing about him.
Runner on 2nd, 2 balls, 2 strikes, 2 outs, Deuces wild...Here’s the pitch...

Mr. Scully was an educated and trained broadcaster, not a dumb a** jock like those hired by E$PN and Fox in this day and age.
Thanks——unlike Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy.
Same here. That's what I was curious to know.
Thanks-—I abhor Joe Buck.
I still remember the Fernandomania days....”Screwball! Strike three! Got him!”
