If you didn’t know before Monday’s Los Angeles Dodgers versus Colorado Rockies showdown, you know now: Vin Scully is a national treasure.
During last night’s largely awful game, Rockies manager Jim Tracy disagreed with a controversial call that went against his team. Naturally, like a crazy person, he rushed the field and began arguing with the ump. That in itself isn't special, though – managers being dumb is standard operating procedure in baseball.
What happened next, however, is what was truly amazing.
Listen to how Scully reported what was going on to the audience at home:
Yup, you heard that correctly, he said “blinkin’ fertilizer.”
Never change, Vin Scully.
