Vin Scully is synonymous with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Major League Baseball. One of the finest ambassadors for the sport throughout his illustrious career, Scully also called NFL games on CBS.

In fact, one might remember his final call: the Dallas Cowboys against the San Francisco 49ers in an NFC Championship Game. Listen to Scully as he calls the play that gave us “The Catch,” Dwight Clark rising to catch Joe Montana’s throw in the back of the end zone that sent the Niners to the Super Bowl.

Scully discussed the call in 2016 on The Rich Eisen Show.

Some of the words as only the 92-year-old Scully can deliver them.

“I’ve seen this country — the greatest country on Earth — get off its knees, literally and figuratively,” the legendary Dodgers announcer says. “When they were down and out during the Depression.”

“And, when they were on their knees after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. And, what happened then? They unleashed a tiger!

“The tiger was the whole country pulling together and getting not only get back on its feet, but saving the whole world,” he said. “So, you and I, yeah, things are tough. But, we’ll be up off our knees soon!”

Since many of us have time to, um, pass. Enjoy watching Scully on the call of the 1982 championship. His analyst? Legendary Kansas City Chiefs coach Hank Stram.
