What if Vin Scully were working for the Yankees instead of the Dodgers?

May 18, 2009 | 12:29 pm

Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully, the voice of the Dodgers, makes his traditional introduction to the game during the Dodgers' opening day against the Giants, another New York transplant. Jadakiss' new song "What If" raises some great questions about our society, and he asks a few about sports:

  • What if Peyton was fighting dogs instead of Mike Vick?
  • What if Portland would've drafted Jordan instead of Sam Bowie?
  • Would Ali give Tyson a busted jaw?
  • What if Vin Scully was working for the Yankees?

OK, he didn't raise that last one. Keith Olbermann did in a column today, where he says Mr. Los Angeles almost returned to New York.

A little factoid Olbermann didn't mention: When Scully first moved to L.A., one of his Brentwood neighbors was John Wooden.
