Maybe it’s his luscious locks, maybe it’s Maybelline, or maybe it’s just the baseball gods giving us another chance for a magnificent Vin Scully call.
New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard blasted two home runs Wednesday night in a 4-3 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Scully, L.A.’s famous broadcaster, blessed us with this gem:
Scully, of course, is referring to the Marvel Comics superhero Thor, an Asgardian god who dons long, blonde hair like Syndergaard’s and possesses incredible strength. “Thor” already was Syndergaard’s nickname, but there’s just something about Scully saying it that makes it almost poetic. And based on Wednesday’s results, it’s more than a fair comparison.
Never retire, Vin.
