Great news, sports fans!

The Dodgers have announced that they've signed legendary announcer Vin Scully for his 61st season in the booth, which is a record for all sports broadcasters:
Scully just celebrated birthday #82 Sunday and he shows no signs of slowing down.

When Scully first called a Dodgers game, the team was in Brooklyn, Harry Truman was president, gas cost $.27 cents a gallon and minimum wage was $.75 an hour.
There was a game I was listening to sometime during the last season or two where he actually mentioned a childhood memory of seeing dead horses on the side of the road in New York City, and yet, here he is in L.A. six decades after beginning his career, still the best baseball broadcaster in the business. I hope he's here for another decade or two, though he says he'll "take it year-to-year" after the coming season.
