Chaucer, Shakesepare, Yeats, Scully

The way Vin Scully talks makes me wonder why I bother to write. Here he is on how Bruce Bochy must have felt watching his Giants get pounded in Monday’s Dodger home opener:


I was thinking about Bruce Bochy on Monday, Opening Day, and I was thinking of a line that F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote:  ‘In the real dark night of the soul it’s always 3 o’clock in the morning.’ And I was thinking about Bochy in the sunshine on Monday. It was sunshine and daytime to everybody here, but not to the Giants’ skipper. It was 3 o’clock in the morning.

What will this world be without baseball broadcasters who quote F. Scott Fitzgerald?
