Too true, sadly. *** (By cataff on Sep 25, 2016 at 8:55 PM * It is amazing the things we remember as well as some of the things we just can't no matter how hard we try.)

No problem re skipping. Funny the things you remember. As a kid I wanted to buy a snappy Arnie shirt, but was reminded that Arnie's full cut shirts would be a poor match with my slim frame. *** (By cataff on Sep 25, 2016 at 8:04 PM * I don't know if Vin is doing all the road games this week or only the one next Sunday. He never said during his broadcasts this weekend, and I can't find the answer anywhere. I'm going to tune in Tuesday night and will find out then. Sorry I skipped this message earlier. I was a big Arnie fan and that was an unexpected blow.)

Arnie's gone. Tough day.

You're welcome. Is he doing the entire series in SF or only Sunday? *** (By cataff on Sep 25, 2016 at 5:53 PM * That is a most excellent and accurate LOL. Thank you very much! __________ By cataff on Sep 25, 2016 at 5:51 PM * Yes, it was so nice of the Dodgers to give us more time with Vin, albeit very nerve racking time. Thank goodness it all came out well in the end with a very unexpected hero. I lost it when they played Vin's recording of "The Wind Beneath My Wings." He even wiped a few tears himself. This would have been even worse for me if it had been his last broadcast. I'm not looking forward to next Sunday at all.)

That's what my lol says, you bet. Hey, the Dodgers are helpfully giving you more of Vin (extra innings). *** (By cataff on Sep 25, 2016 at 4:01 PM * There's no one even close to being the broadcaster Vin is. Baseball will never be quite the same for me again.)

I guess I can't get past his voice and delivery. Obviously he is a good guy, no criticism there. Vin recalled the flag incident recently. *** (By cataff on Sep 25, 2016 at 2:48 PM * I liked Monday as a player, and he's a good broadcaster too. I guess he and his flag save will always be part of baseball lore.)

"It's a shame that they didn't carry Vin for the entire game on radio today." Yep. G-D love Rick Monday, but the best comment on his broadcasting was the sardonic one by a wag who said "I wish he had never saved that stupid flag."

...aaaand that does it for me and Vin. Listening on the app, not watching, and he only does three innings on radio.

orly? Dunno 'bout that. One back, so far. *** (By cataff on Sep 25, 2016 at 2:03 PM * No, things aren't looking good for a win. Most teams who blow someone out the night before don't win the next day. I am still hoping they can do it though.)

Darn, he mentioned it again and I didn't catch all of it. It always feels better to win out rather than back in. So far not going according to plan. *** (By cataff on Sep 25, 2016 at 1:37 PM * Yes, Vin did say sternly, "It's not about me." He has said that a lot recently. I do hope the guys can win today and seal up the West on Vin's last day at Chavez Ravine.)

Scully noted the waving to the booth, then sternly directed attention away from himself.

Thanks for the congrats. That was a surprise for me. The lol is some weeks (or months?) old.

I just watched Vin's send off. How could anyone not love that man. I hate to admit it but if I'd had access to his broadcasts all these years I might have become a...wait, that's crazy talk...but still it would have been a joy to listen to him. And we'll always have his call of "the Catch". I didn't get to hear it in real time. I was at the game.

I haven't had a chance to see the Vin ceremony but I will. It was a busy night. I just saw a snippet of an interview with him and they asked him about the call he made on Buckner's grounder screw up. He reflected "it was such a harmless, innocuous little grounder you just waned to take it to school..." What a classic line. Your coach obviously didn't run the boys enough last week. There were still a lot of penalties but they did get a win. There better be a lot of sprints this morning.

It sounds like they gave Vin a great ceremony. I wish I could have watched it. Congrats on JMU's win over Maine. Did they have any problem with penalties? I was disappointed to see UTEP get spanked again. I think they should consider dropping down to FCS since they can't even be competitive with the teams in their own conference. I was glad to have some slower times, but I also felt bored at times. I'm glad for the break in training, but I'm sure I'll have to do some before the new year starts so we'll be ready when things pick up. Which games did you watch this afternoon? I watched some of Georgia/Ole Miss and Notre Dame/Duke earlier and some of Stanford/UCLA tonight and Texas A&M/Arkansas. I was disappointed Notre Dame lost again. Have a great evening and Sundog :)

Didn't Johnny Cash write a song about A Vulture Named Buttercup? Obviously he's a good sport. I got choked up reading the article I saw about Vin's celebration last night. I can only imagine how it's hitting you. What a quitter...packing it in after a mere 67 years. What kind of example is that for the kid?
