When 80-year-old Jack McKeon was named the interim manager of the Marlins, there were instant concerns that he would not be able to relate to the players like he did in the 2003 World Series year. Though he put his foot down with Hanley Ramirez, he proved his disconnect with the younger players regarding a lack of twitter knowledge.

Maybe McKeon doesn’t know how to operate twitter (not unlike many young friends of mine), but I’m sure he’s heard of it and was just joking. Still, there’s something humorous about hearing 83-year-old Vin Scully joke about it, even if this isn’t the first time he’s cracked jokes at someone’s expense. And if you’re wondering how the subject even came up during the Dodgers-Tigers telecast, a producer or assistant must have shared the tweet Logan Morrison sent out after Tuesday’s game.
Morrison wrote on twitter “McKeon asked me what I had going on tonite. Told him I was going home 2 play w/ Twitter. He replied “oh, what kind of dog is it?”
The only thing that could possibly top that video is if Vin Scully had a twitter account and were following Logan Morrison with it. Now that would be a trip.Google+
