    Not much of a baseball fan anymore and didn’t watch the game but that 4+ minute Vin Scully skit instantly sent me back in time to my youth as soon as they sent out Fernando. Growing up in Wisconsin, me and all my neighborhood chums were Brewer fan, pretending to be Cecil Cooper, Ben Oglivie, Gorman Thomas, Rollie Fingers, Pete Vuckovich. One summer “Fernando-mania” struck and all of us tried to be him, switching from righty to leftie! Czabe, you’ve done it again…thanks for making my Friday and sending this 49 year old on a time machine, and maybe, just maybe forcing this guy to tune into a baseball game for the first time in years.

      Another 49 y.o. here. I watched most of the game, but turned it off in the ninth. Derp! Missed the first pitch skit too, but man, that was pure perfection. Back then my Brewers were AL, but the Dodgers and Braves were my NL teams. Fernando, Yeager, Don Sutton, Ron Cey, Davey Lopes, Steve Sax, Steve Garvey, Kenny Landreaux, and THE announcer for the ages, Vin Scully.
