Longtime Dodgers broadcaster and franchise icon, Vin Scully, is well respected for his ability to call a game and tell stories. He’s usually known to discuss most issues in a positive light but he’s brought down the hammer of truth for certain occasions. On Monday night when the Dodgers lost to the Diamondbacks 3-2, Scully shared with the audience some thoughts of disgust. Vin was describing the tattoos of Arizona utility man Ryan Roberts who was at-bat when he got in this blast:
“Did you see as many tattooed people outside of the circus with that Denver basketball team? They must not have a drop of ink in Colorado.”
Damn Vin, tell us how you really feel. Seriously, between Chris Andersen, J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin, Carmelo Anthony, and Anthony Carter, it’s hard not to look at the Nuggets and be immediately struck by the preponderance of body ink. Aside from the national TV ratings generated by the Lakers, the tats have to be another reason David Stern is counting his lucky stars the Lakers advanced. I’ll say this much: I had no idea Scully would even be watching any Western Conference playoff basketball. Guess he has some time on his hands during those road trips.
