    I wish Vin Scully was still saying "It's time for Dodger Baseball!"

    Wow, 1-0 Dodgers in the first already!

    Go Dodgers!

    I’m grudgingly rooting for the Dodgers. If nothing else, their victory creates a cop out for us Cubs fans. “We lost to the WS champs...”

    I was really disappointed by the Cubs game 5 performance.

    While as a Dodger fan I was heartbroken over the loss to the Astros last night, I was amazed at the absolute craziness and up/down nature of the game.

    It was bad for Dodger fans, but what a GREAT game for baseball fans.

    That was a hell of a World Series. Games were reasonably quick, too, which baseball really needs to get on top of if they want to get the video-gamer/You-Tuber/smart-phone-starer generation to watch their product in future decades.

    Amazing series. My Dodgers came up short, but the Astros are a well deserving team.

    29 years... what's one more?

    Now you’re starting to sound like a Cubs fan :)

    Vin Scully has announced that he will never watch another NFL game.

    Here is Scully's quote to put this in context:

    "I have only one personal thought, really. And I am so disappointed. And I used to love, during the fall and winter, to 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 I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game."
