Vin Scully is to the LA Dodgers like bad publicity is to terrorists. They go hand-in-hand. At the same time, Scully is kind of reaching the point where I feel like he doesn’t really know what’s going on half the time. It’s the age old sympton of the elderly that, at a certain point, they just do not give a shit anymore about what people think about them. It’s why they suck at driving/are mostly all kind of racist. They could not give less of a fuck about things such a political correctness or whatever you think they should and should not do. Now I’m not saying that Scully is racist or a bad driver, but I will say that sometimes he just says whatever he’s thinking. Kind of like how he announced to all of America that he was pretty that the ball girl (who was clearly a girl) was actually a girl, but that he couldn’t be positive.
So that girl just saved that dude’s life. In my opinion, this will all be naught if she doesn’t constantly use that as a fun fact whenever she’s in any sort of orientation. “Hi, I’m Sarah. I like to watch Netflix and eat ice cream and one time I saved a man from getting his brain scrambled by a 108 MPH foul ball.” Maybe she’ll even add the fact that Scully told the entire nation that he wasn’t sure if she was a girl. “And also the announcer couldn’t tell whether or not I was a girl so that’s why I wear so much makeup and low cut shirts. I guess you could say I have ‘Old Men Who Aren’t My Daddy’ issues.”
