Vin Scully, Legendary Voice Of The Dodgers, Will Never Watch The NFL Again

Posted by November 5, 2017 Comment

I grew up in Southern California and I was a Los Angeles Dodgers fan. I listened to games on the radio when they weren’t on television and the consistent thing for the over 4 decades I’ve been a fan has been the voice of Vin Scully. Recently retired, Scully is a legend and an icon to the sport of baseball. One of the absolute best announcer of all time.

Scully made news yesterday involving another sport… football. While at an appearance at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, Scully was doing a Q&A session when he was asked about the NFL and the national anthem protests. Scully says the protests will keep him from watching the games anymore.

During the fall and winter, I watch the NFL on Sunday, and it’s not that I’m some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year, didn’t go anywhere, didn’t do anything, but I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing that I can do in my little way is to not to preach; I will never watch another NFL game.

According to ESPN, his comment was greeted by lengthy applause and cheers.
