Vin Scully's simulcast on Comcast Sports Net Chicago on Sunday, Aug. 28, was a treat for more than the obvious reasons.
To be sure, seeing Scully do part of his final game involving a Chicago team was must-viewing, showing the old master, while a bit slowed in delivery at 88, still has his broadcast wordsmith and storytelling talents intact.
What most CSN Chicago viewers did not know is they never got nearly enough of Scully at his very best through much of his Ripken-esque 67 seasons behind the Dodgers mic. The Midwest was a kind of "Scully desert" for his 1950s through 1970s radio prime.
