Vin Scully: ‘I Will Never Watch Another NFL Game’ [VIDEO]

Great American, Vin Scully

Legendary former L.A. Dodgers announcer Vin Scully, who retired last year after an amazing 67-year career, is no fan of the NFL protests against the American flag and the National Anthem and did not hold back when asked about the topic.

Speaking at “An Evening with Vin Scully” at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Saturday, Scully said in response from an attendee during the question and answer session:

“I have only one personal thought, really. And I am so disappointed. I used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday. And it’s not that I’m some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year. Didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game.”

Vin Scully, 89, is a legend whose downplaying his patriotism and has earned the right to preach all that he wants to. Last year during a broadcast in June of last year before he retired, Scully took the opportunity to call out the evils of socialism.

Scully, an American icon, was introducing Milwaukee Brewers infielder and Venezuela native Hernan Perez:

“Perez, 25 years old, originally drafted by the Tigers. Lives in Venezuela,” the Hall-of-Famer said during the Brewers-Dodgers game. “Boy, can you imagine you’re a young kid, you’re playing in the United States, you’re from Venezuela, and every time you look at the news it’s a nightmare.

“Socialism failing to work, as it always does, this time in Venezuela,” Mr. Scully continued. “You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez. Hello! Anyway, 0-and-2.”

Boom.
