Vin Scully did research on beards so he could educate everyone on the history of beards. Because he's senile and often he forgets that he gets paid to call baseball games.
I'm not one of the people who think Vin Scully is some sort of broadcasting genius. Sure he has a pleasant voice, I'll give him that. But he often rambles on about shit that has absolutely nothing to do with the game he's supposed to be announcing.
I think at this point the whole thin is just sad. They should have forced him to retire like 20 years ago.
